[Pkg-samba-maint] Bug#726163: Some of this could be trimmed

This is happening because we moved all samba libraries that didn't
have separate packages yet into a single large package.

I would like to split some of these libraries out in a reasonable
way, that's a larger project. We don't want to just ship everything in
its own package, or we'd end up with a gazillion binary packages.
Some of these libraries or plugins could probably be in the 'samba'
package as they're only used by the server.

In the ideal case, you'd end up with the following dependencies:

  libaio1 libasn1-8-heimdal libgssapi3-heimdal libhcrypto4-heimdal
  libheimbase1-heimdal libheimntlm0-heimdal
  libhx509-5-heimdal libkrb5-26-heimdal libldb1
  libroken18-heimdal samba-libs libsmbclient0

The various Heimdal packages are quite small, but essential
(they're used for Kerberos client-side authentication).

In other words, the following dependencies should be avoidable:

  libsubunit0 libwind0-heimdal libkdc2-heimdal libhdb9-heimdal
