nope!!!   remember, it's information across _multiple_ smbd processes.
the only way to get this stuff is from either shared memory or its
slow-equivalent, file-based.

[i'd like locking/shmem*.c to be sufficiently general so that we can
replace STATUS..LCK with proper shared memory library routines, but that
is a job for another day].

hmmmm... if it's going to be shared between smbstatus and rpcclient and
smbd, then in lib/

thanks michael!
