We don't want to use AD, so Samba4 looks good.  However, we don't want to pull apart our directory to implement samba4.  Is there a way to get Samba 4 running so that it is able to use the existing LDAP and Kerberos set up for user info and user auth look up, still support Windows clients with AD, and still use our existing bind for general host look ups, but use samba4's own internal DNS for AD stuff?

If Apples solution is based on Samba3 (I have no personal experience
with it). You would probably need two domains: the existing one and a
new Samba4 one. Then set up a cross-domain trust between. Then join your
windows boxes to the Samba4 domain.
