Yes, exporting all this data (which you are correct in assuming
is available via smbstatus) via mmc and NT server manager is on
the roadmap for later 2.2.x releases.

It's a matter of filling in the relevent RPC replies correctly
(we already know most of the info levels). A "simple matter of
coding" in fact :-) :-).
