This (quite interesitng IMHO) functionality should be added to the new
'net' command in HEAD.  This is where we are gathering all our client
'utility' code in a hope that it will be easier to maintian than 50 *
smb___ tools. :-).

If you need any help intergrating into the new structure (your commands
will probably end up under 'net rpc' - source/utils/net_rpc.c) just give
me a yell!
