Well, that is probably not clear enough but what seems clear is that
we will certainly need to have both versions in the archive at the same
time at some moment.

So, we'd better prepare for this ASAP, which certainly includes the
etch->lenny release cycle.

After some talks around here, working to allow both set of packages
installed simultaneously on the same machine is probably not worth it,
so we can probably make hypothetical samba and samba4 packages mutually
exclusive. This seems to rejoin Steve's opinion in this thread, indeed.

I'm still deeply convinced that keeping the current situation with
samba(==samba3) packages in unstable/testing and samba4 packages in
experimental is a handicap.
