Yeah we still maintain openldap backend (which provides core 
functionality for the school) - the way i see it is that samba account 
information has moved from openldap to s4.
AFAICT (but would like to be proven wrong) s4 allows the storage of 
posix account attributes, but i do not think you can add custom schemas 
to it.
I suspect this behaviour is probably no different to real AD
