[opensuse] Samba 4 alienates openSUSE clients

Firstly an apology for the British Tabloid type headline

If Samba 4 goes ahead as it is, it will remove the possibility of creating a single sign on for both Linux and windows users. As it stands it makes no provision for integrating Linux users into the AD. IOW What the Yast User and group management module does now for LDAP users will be obsoleted by Samba 4.

Are there any plans to Integrate Samba 4 into the Yast User and Group management and be able to create a Linux and Samba 4 user? (As it does at the moment with Samba 3/Linux).

I really do think some important issues are being overlooked.
