as it is stated in the it would be enough to move the libsamba-net out of the samba-libs into a separate package libsamba-net. Then samba-libs would not dependent on python at all. In turn gvfs-backends would be free of python too which would make it possible to have python2 free desktop starting with the 16.04 lts.
The dependency to that new libsamba-net package should be added in the samba package.

It's been over 6 months and two 16.04 releases have come and gone.. Has there been any progress on this? Does the status just need to be updated? Thanks for all the effort that is going into making Python3 a priority and 1st class citizen in Ubuntu. We switched from RHEL to Ubuntu Server because of this goal.

python3-ldb appears to have come from an ubuntu-specific patch that got dropped at some point.
