Well, it turns out that there are cli_query_secdesc and cli_set_secdesc
routines already in Samba, and there is an obvious place to put these
calls in smbclient/clitar.c ...
All that remains is figuring out a TAR header type to write them as, and a
small matter of programming. There should probably be a flag to switch
them on and off :-)
