The samba client library is taking shape, and I will possibly be able to
post around the .h file tomorrow for some discussion, however, I have a
question that I would appreciate an answer on.

There will be an include file, libsmbclient.h or smbclient.h, I am not sure
yet which, which will define all of the routines in the API.

This include file requires <sys/types.h>, <sys/stat.h>, <fcntl.h> and

Should I insist that users of the library must include these files, or
should I simply included them in libsmbclient.h?
