Does this mean you want to keep the line about supporting "Windows,
NT, OS/2 and DOS clients", or is it just that you've got some better
summary in mind of Samba 4's reason for existing?  That wouldn't be 
surprising; after all, I'm not even a Samba 4 user yet!

It's looking more and more as if I've done this completely backwards
and the way to go is to submit separate niggly bugreports against
each individual problem with the package descriptions in the Samba 3
control file.  Then after those are fixed I can come back and look
at the Samba 4 suite.
