So the new packages have now made it into experimental

However, it isn't obvious what the upgrade step(s) should be from an
existing `samba4` install to these packages. They don't appear to have
specified Conflicts/Replaces with the samba4 packages, and it appears
like a `sudo apt-get install -t experimental samba` would be partially
installing alongside the existing samba4 binaries?
