     Well as I had mentioned about 2 or 3 weeks ago. What I would like to
do is to extend Midnight Commander's VFS to include a smbfs. It already
has tarfs ftpfs and serveral others. If I or we would do this you could
have a qt gtk/gnome and slang interfaces to samba or a window's network
(what ever you want to call it) instantly. :)

But then agian I had this great idea and have found that I have very
little time to work on it! :(

I just thought I would pass that on. Check out
