I think samba3 can be classed as crufty. Last patch (according to

The net/samba (3) and net/samba4 DESCR files do not give statements
about if 3 is mainstream and 4 bleeding edge vs 3 crufty and 4
mainstream. I bet it's that 4 is normal now.
Thoughts? Barring none, I'll perhaps do something after I investigate.
Samba 4.11.7 is the current stable release of samba. So it seems like
dropping samba3 is reasonable. Its not an entirely pain free migration
from samba 3 to 4 but I've not yet found anthing you can't do and I've
used it as both a standalone server and as part of an active directory
