Thanks for the vote of confidence, Dave, but the Samba/LDAP Installer
doesn't merge anything.  It overwrites everything!  It makes
timestamped backups of all the config files it overwrites, but you
definitely shouldn't run it on a production system that already has
users (at least not without some careful planning and preparation).

If you need to upgrade, I recommend that you
1) dump your LDAP DB with slapcat,
2) upgrade your packages (Samba, OpenLDAP, etc.),
3) run the Samba/LDAP installer again, and
4) read your DB back into LDAP.
