For instance to avoid having to take care of compeltely outdated
packages in experimental, which produced a few bug reports?

Or maybe because we might, at some moment, want to upload new releases
of samba in experimental, for instance when lenny will be frozen.

Urgency is maybe because we are at the beginning of the release cycle
and this is time to prepare potentially disruptive changes.

Urgency is maybe also because I'm currently focused on samba for a
while and that won't last for months..:-)

Urgency also because Jelmer is motivated to begin pushing some parts
of samba4 in Debian.
