Yes, I should.  I'm crazy busy these days.  I've been slapping together
code in C just to test things out.  Messy.

I've now tested W/95, W/98, and W2K.  It seems that W/9x obeys the
retarget directive, but W2K does not.

I'm going to polish my retarget code (which listens for Session Setup
requests on port 139 and replies with a retarget message) and then I'll
let people play with it.  Samba can be made to run on a nonstandard port
(use the -p option to smbd), so this is easy to test.

I would love to know what XP and NT4 do...
