Great idea to tesstdrive the new ruleset.
And 4e CAN support necromantic druids, as long as they are just the enemies.
There was a severe paradigm shift from D&D 3.x (and other editions) to D&D 4 and so far I can't say that this shift is a bad thing. (More about that soon on my blog)
I expect many groups to split their activities to two distinctly different parts.
One that continues D&D 3.x (or converts to the Pathfinder RPG) where you include all types of mix and matching abilities but gets quite a lot of problems at higher levels and another that comes together for a fast and easy D&D4 game where you don't have to manage your character concept during character generation but you manage your abilities during the game.
I'll continue with at least 2-3 adventures in the "War of the Burning Sky" adventure path and will see where to go from there.
