Right. Oops.

Absolutely. It should be totally transparent to users.

Nope :) You asked me about this before and I tried it with jCIFS. I don't
recall exactly what happend but it just didn't work. It's kind of funny to
note that current MSRPC stubs generate a format string that is used for
decoding and encoding. Ha.
