I'd just like a very basic port of "nbtstat" that *always* works.
(Actually, I'm incredibly lazy and should write it myself, but don't tell
anyone.  Oops.)

Any idea if there's any progress on print queue support, i.e. I print to a
Samba queue via Windows and Samba learns the print name, number of pages,
and, with support from external apps, can feed back the status of each
print to the user?

I'll send in a patch when I get home from Cisco.

Well, we can at least mention that they require code on the client side.

Too bad.  Transparent support for sharing identical shares over appletalk
as are shared over Samba would be very, very, very cool.

Ah well.
