If the "valid users" directive is no longer used, is there some sort of
equivalent in Samba4?

I haven't been able to find a list of currently working directives for
shares on Samba4.  I'm beginning to see why you still need a samba3 server
-- it appears that much of the control over properties of shares has yet to
make its way into samba4.  Is this accurate?
