libsmbclient: Browsing and a URI spec?

Right.  It's a Single Master Domain.  The Master Domain maintains the
accounts, and the remote domains, the workgroup domains, maintain the local
machine accounts.  The one way trusts allow the workgroup domains to
authenticate the users of the master domain.

So, then, the question is should it even be addressed in the context that is
being discussed, or should it be part of a trust relation support mechanism?
