Samba Swat Won't Install - Depends of Older Packages

I am trying to install samba-swat, which contains swat. urpmi says it depends on older packages, so it won't install. I am in the middle of redoing everything I have on my server with Mageia Linux 4.1 (or could be just 4, it doesn't seem to say which).

swat is deprecated and doesn't work with 4.x versions of Samba. SWAT2 is meant to replace it, but it's currently very much a work in progress.
