[jcifs] Group name queries.

I think we've had this discussion before, but I'm going to whine about it
again...  (Just like me, isn't it.  Geez. ;)

I'm trying to whip up a quick little name query utility and I'm not getting
the results I expect.

If I send a query for a unique name I should get back one answer (in the
form of an NbtAddress object, yes/no?).  If I query for a group name, I
expect several responses, so the method I use should return an array (which,
in the case of a unique name would have one entry).

I'm currently using getAllByAddress(), but this always reacts to the first
name query response it receives by sending a node status query.  I don't
want to know the other names that one node has registered, I want to know
the IPs of all of the nodes that have registered a given name.

I'm either missing something or the code I actually want is not exposed.  I
just want to send a query and get the list of associated IPs back.

Let me know if I'm just missing something.
