That was old reason, last time I checked MIT did not have LDAP
and Samba support. Also no Samba flavor ever built with MIT,
and that's crucial now Samba is a real AD server. Just read README.dc
from Fedora's samba package, it's so pathetic it still makes me
laugh my ass off.
That were the reasons we switched to Heimdal.
