Something i have been wondering more and more about recently is about an
API.  Is there an API as such for Samba, which would give us (programmers of
other utilities) the ability to have functions such as thoes listed in MSDN,
i am refering to mainly the Net* Calls.
Currently, i have had to do nasty little hacks and get link to the samba
shared objects ... so is there another layer of abstraction out there ? if
not, would anyone be intereseted in such a thing ? if there is a reason why
this hasnt been done ( i am thinking of technical reasons of sound standing
here ), then please let us know.

Thanks !
