libsmbclient: Browsing and a URI spec?

I think that Kevin is correct to point out that a Server and a Client 
have a different perspective when it comes to authentication domains vs. 
browser workgroups (domains).  From a server point of view, both should 
be the same.  Separating browsing domain from authentication domain is 
only an issue for a client.

To clarify for Armand, the topic here is the setting of default values, 
rather than the use of the smb:// URI.  Mike Allen has given an example 
of an environment in which a client must authenticate to one ntdomain, 
but should default to browsing another.
