Originally there were some missing features/API calls that
were easier to add to Heimdal (and the Heimdal source got
imported into Samba to do just that, which we'd eventually
like to get rid of and just depend on upstream).
There is active work going on to make Samba4 work with an
MIT kdc out of the box, and as I said the ultimate goal
is to get Samba out of the kdc-source-code business :-).
