With the difference that Microsoft's network neighborhood is entirely
GUI-driven. If we're just doing that, no problem. But there's no MS
precedent for textually accessing a browse list. Start->Run \\workgroup
doesn't work, only Start->Run \\server. So we're not just replicating
Microsoft functionality here, we're breaking new ground... and any mistakes
will be ours, not Microsoft's :)
