Assuming for second that you could lookup group members, how do you know
group G is defined on server F so that you can query F for the members?

I think you would have to implement the NetLocalGroupGetMembers RPC
(whatever it's really called). That isn't too hard. What is harder is
figuring out conceptually how it should be exposed through the JCIFS API.
