One recurring theme in the NetBIOS chapter of my book is the interplay
between theory and practice.  My weakness in writing the book is that I am
heavy on the theory side.  You and some of the folks on the Samba Team are
further over on the practice side.  This is really kewl.  It works for the
same reason that having two eyes works better than having one.
