This is a good argument. I've been on the fence with this as well. I'll
change it if that's what people want.

Also, I forgot to mention that the listFiles( SmbFileFilter ) should
definately include hidden files and I will fix that regardless. It's
probably a trivial fix as well in which case I will get it in the next 0.8
