	Ehh, there's no guarantee that the client couldn't actually be
something other than NT.  You shouldn't really rely on the assumption that
the client simply won't ask for things that it shouldn't have access to if
you want any sort of security.  You need to do validation in some fashion,
be it explicit access checks or by letting the native OS access controls do
their thing.
