that's actually _really_ good news.
okay, so now it is possible to use that as the front-end for
se-samba(4), and to run against a samba(3) server as the back-end!
okay, got a question for you.
how does the samba4 smb client VFS proxy handle multiple
TConX's over the same SMBsessionX?
a) try to multiplex them onto the same smb client connection?
b) create a NEW smb client tcp connection over to the back-end
if b) then the work needed to support se-samba is... like... done!
