Yep, that arguments counts. However, I still keep thinking that we
should be ready to have both packages families coexist.

After all, nothing currently tells us that samba4 cannot be considered
"ready for release" before the targeted etch release date (though I
slightly doubt it).

Anyawy, as we have the release manager in the team, I think that his
advice will be worth being read on that topic.
