Actually, one the most complelling reasons for this in my
opinion is the ability to use a secure LDAP replication scheme
for supporting multiple samba domain controllers without
having to use the NT 4 PDC <-> BDC SAM replication protocol.
As a side note, Samba's LDAP schema is about to get a face lift
to make it more compatible with MS's AD.
Very interesting times we live in...
