Sounds like an interesting project, and I know that this kind of thing
has been talked about before.
One question: What do you do when someone clicks on a service in the
browse list? Do you launch smbclient or mount it with smbfs? Smbfs is
for Linux only, which is why I ask. You could open a shell with
smbclient or smbsh.
