There's a request for this in #356088

We discussed this with Jelmer yesterday and it would be good to have
him maintain that package. The current package has many packages
depending on it but Jelmer mentioned that there are no API changes.

No package existing for that one.

Thanks, that really gives the directions. Getting these in Debian will
quite certainly depend on you. As we talk yesterday, having this work
done in the pkg-samba SVN and using this mailing list as communication
will probably enforce the (small) team we currently are. And no doubt
that Uncle Steve will bring his wisdom to give good advices.

We should also mention the samba4wins packages that are planned by
Michael Adam (the WINS part of Samba4, in short, including replication
and all that stuff).
