hm, nooo... i created a "struct client_info" which contained all the
global variables in client.c and a "struct client_tar_info" that contained
all the global variables in clitar.c.

then: /tmp/foo

sed -e /tmp/foo client/clitar.c > client/clitar.c.mod
sed -e /tmp/foo client/client.c > client/client.c.mod

then the same with client.c for cwd, recurse variables etc etc to

then have a static struct smb_cli_info smb_info in client.c.
