The problem is that Stefan is operating a daemon with too many shares
for them all to have drive letters all the time.  It might be possible
to map and unmap network drives dynamically using "pre-xfer exec" and
"post-xfer exec", but it would take a lot of care to make that work
correctly with multiple concurrent connections.
