It needs to be cleaned up a bit, but I hope to get to it soon.

it actually has a home, I'm just waiting for the dsl line.  thanks though.
also if you want to include it in the gui tools section of the web page,
that would be cool.

I'm still thinking about that.  One ideas I have is to include the text
version with samba, that way it can stay up to date and what so.  It
however is just a text wrapper around a couple of function calls, which
could them be easily moved to the gui part.

On the other hand it would be nice to be able to just link to a library.
I've glanced a little at Nicolas Brodu's smblib and want to play with it
some more.

thanks for the ideas.
