Just to say that rpcclient is a very useful tool, at least for
penetration testers and systems administrators in Windows environment...

With the IDL-based MSRPC implementation of Samba4, I think rpcclient
could support even more interesting commands. 

Even if Windows remote administration tools use less and less DCE/RPC
over SMB and more and more WMI (DCOM based), IMHO, rpcclient is still a
very useful tool to have IMHO...

But I suppose it is hard to speak about porting rpcclient to Samba4
without volunteering to do the work...
