 brilliant!  excellent!

 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?

 does it:

 a) try to multiplex them onto the same smb client connection?

 b) create a NEW smb client tcp connection over to the back-end
    smb server?

 if b) then the work needed to support se-samba is... like... done!
