Thanks, Mike.  /  Michael: You got that?  :)

In my *quick* read of the NetServerEnum2 description, it seems to me that
the TYPE_WORKGROUP, TYPE_SERVER, etc. represent a different class of
values.  They seem to indicate which server type the server itself
actually is.

The STYPE_DISKTREE, STYPE_PRINTQ seem to referr the share itself.  I don't
see the two overlapping, but I do like the idea of a getType method in
both cases.

No, it's good code.  I've just been wildly busy.  I suppose that's not
unusual, though.
