hm actually, to send winpopup, you need onlu wins name and perhaps ip.
wins name is in utmp, session list is in utmp, nmblookup is there as
well and of course smbclient to send popup. so, relatively simple script
is needed to extract "targets" from last command output (or directly
from (u|w)tmp[x] - with perl for example), so this winwall depends only
on utmp registering. 

So you're back... about time...
