This would limit the number of session setups, but not the number of
tree connects.  As such it would not preserve the semantics completely,
but might provide a solution for some sites when that is what they
wanted anyway.  

Unfortunately if the intent is to prevent more than one person accessing
a share at a time, ie for lock-less databases, then it won't help -
unless you prevent more than one person from accessing the server at a
time.  Also, guest connections are exempt from session.c, due to the
accounting cost.
