You're the first to ask.

The solution is to add setLastModified( long date ) or copyTo( SmbFile
file ) or both. Unfortunately we're in the middle of what has turned
out to be an unually long and troublesome beta cycle. After 0.6 is out
the door I'll propbably disappear for 3 months.
But new commands are not that hard to add if you're ok with wading
through hexdumps and handy with ethereal.
May The Source be with you.
