You are still not listening, you have in the past used daemontools, you 
may (probably will) have to stop using it. Put it this way, Samba4 AD DC 
equals a windows AD DC, would you try and change how a windows server 
works ??

I think that you should also take note of how long it took Zentyal to 
update from S3 to S4, it was over 2yrs.
