I do not know what rcmd does, but `rpcclient' and/or `samedit' seem to
be what you want.  I'm a little unclear on the distinction between the
two, since rpcclient does seem to support user management functions,
but samedit (which, BTW, exists only in TNG) seems to be the
Enlightened Way.

No need to move to TNG for smbd/nmbd, but you definitely want the TNG
version of rpcclient/samedit, which is *much* more advanced than the
other branches.  Trust me on this one.
