The best way would be the 'samba-tool domain samba3upgrade', and then
any migration from there.  I know you have not had great luck with that,
and I spent some time today staring at the valgrind log without success.
The other script around is the 'myldap-pub.py' script, which has been
used for real-life s3 -> AD migrations, via Samba4.
