Can this not ultimately be framed and resolved in the same way as
gstreamer-plugins-good/bad/ugly? If it is still only a matter of
distribution (I didn't really understand the whole of the GPL3 yet), the
combination can occur at the end-user.

In that scenario until there is a better resolution Fedora ships an
increasingly dusty GPL2 Samba and it's up to the user if they replace it
with a same soname GPL3 packaged one from elsewhere (it's always up to
them anyway, let's face it).
