Does Samba 4 have to be a sole AD master or can it participate in a 
multi-master role with an existing AD environment?

I itching to be able to finally not use any Microsoft based software on 
the servers. The Windows 2000 AD just serves logon scripts, group 
policies and printing. It is safe to assume that all these are available 
with the latest alpha?
