True. There is no attempt to decode the URL. This will need to be fixed
however I cannot just run the whole thing through a URLDecoder. I will
have to parse out the escapes in jcifs.smb.Handler.

A  program should be written to model the concepts of the task it
performs rather than the physical world or a process because this
maximizes  the  potential  for it to be applied to tasks that are
conceptually  similar and, more important, to tasks that have not
yet been conceived.
