As every software, there's no version that is totally fitting all needs 
from everybody. samba-tool, like everything else on that project is 
growing and getting better with every version.

I'm sure, that samba-tool will provide more features in future versions.

But if you are a programmer and familiar with python, you can help 
adding new features to samba-tool. On the samba-technical mailing list 
you can ask for some first information to start, if you want to help.

For me: Absolutely. I migrated our domain at work to samba 4, when it 
was in beta state (150 users, 230 workstations). And it's running 
perfect stable and I'm very happy with my samba4 backend.

But as everything in production, you should of course validate if the 
software is fitting your needs at your site.

I currently don't have samba4 servers with 'create mask', etc. (only on 
3.6.x servers) and haven't looked at that yet. Have you tried it with 4.x?
