So at this point, we in the Debian Samba team are operating on the
assumption that the GPLv3 compatibility issues for KDE libsmbclient support
have been sorted out, or that any remaining issues can be sorted out before
release, and that we're ok to ship Samba 3.2.0 in lenny without also
providing a 3.0 library for license compatibility.
Thanks for your feedback.
