I think MS just did us (and themselves) a disservice.

If I read this correctly, what it does is prevent separate users on a
multi-user system from accessing the same NT service.  This puts a kink
into the utility of, say, libsmbclient. 

Because there are effectively no multi-user Windows OSes, this isn't a 
problem from MS's point of view.

Am I reading that right?
