libsmbclient: Browsing and a URI spec?

I don't see how it really does.  From the client perspective, regardless of
the domain that samba is configured to be in, from the client perspective,
should be achieved as was already discussed.  
will access the server specified, regardless of what domain/workgroup the
server is located in, and it will authenticate the user against the domain
specified in the authentication field...   But isn't this out of context
from what I was replying to?

Perhaps we are looking at two different scenarios... re:libsmbclient,
authenticating against a domain, should be done in the same manor that samba
authenticates against a domain.  And as such, should not really have an
issue... right?
