Any patches will be posted to the samba-technical mailing list.  I
don't normally track new features like this in Bugzilla, but you can
see if there is ticket there.

Honestly, I had really expected that one of our users would have
written the patches by now, at least to have Samba use the new schema
in a fresh provision.  That part is mostly a matter of parsing the
supplied schema files and loading it in the DB.  That code is all in
Python.  Upgrades are harder, and making it come in over replication is
probably also a pain, but 4.5 should have fixed some of that, but
clearly not everything.
