While this is very late in the cycle, the changes to samba look like
bugfixes to me and the samba4alpha package is likely one we can push
through the freeze anyway due to it's nature.

So IMO the only question is the tdb and ldb. Are these just bug fixes
too? (as ldb is an import it's less of an issue - is it just needed for
