Beware only apt-get remove samba is not enough.
And as rowland already is saying there will be things removed which you dont want, or things wil be keept in debian due dependecies.
Bob, i'm testing now for a new 4.4.6 ( own build ) since its not in debian.
I'll have to look into 4.5 for Jessie thats a bit harder since tevent tdb ldb things like that must also be upgrade to avoid some bug.
I know before the weekend, im setting up now a new build env for 4.5.
I'll keep you guys posted.
