[jcifs] The Workstation Service on <machine>#00

I'm just curious.  Does anyone know which mailslots are listening by default
on the <machine>#00 unique name?

According to some old Windows/95 documentation:

computer\0x00  Used by Microsoft networking workstations to receive second
               class mailslot requests. All workstations must add this
               name in order to receive mailslot requests. This is the
               computer name registered for workstation services by a
               WINS client.

I am wondering what mailslot requests would be sent via this name.  I assume
that the workstation service has a generic mailslot listener, but I don't
know which mailslots would be available.

Clues and hints appreciated.
