Yes, that is how I think it has to happen. When a user calls
cli_send_tconX, they get back a share struct, but they have to have created
a connection struct before hand ...
I think they need to do this anyway, so they get the option to have
separate connections for each share if they want, or shared connections
where they maje sense.
