I would suggest you to go over the list of commands in rpcclient and
determine which you see useable and which do not yet have a counterpart in
the net command (or other Samba commands). Then propose this list of
commands to the samba-technical list, preferably with a bit of motivation
to each command.  It is not very meaningful to discuss the rpcclient tool 
as such but it is meaningful to discuss the useful functions it does 
provide and how these functions is best provided by Samba.
