I checked client.c and there's still a good number of commands
commented out.  Which ones do you think can be finished in time?
Obviously the [m]get and [m]put options are a requirement.
And I think cleaning up the error messages in the above output
is important.  The two directories, 'hail' and 'spud' are msdfs
links btw....  And the extra prompt for a password should be
cleaned up (since the password was specified on the command line).

Do all of the posix commands, such as chmod and chown, have an
interface in libsmbclient?

As far as final deliverables go, we can't really swap out
the existing smbclient due to some changes in the display
mode or features that people may be relying on.  So we should
probably include this as a new client.  Got any ideas for
a name?  We can eventually deprecate the existing smbclient
once all the current features are covered in the new code.

Same deal for final deliverable.  I need a patch file against
the current SAMBA_3_0 tree (as of the last week of Aug I guess).
Make sure to include the necessary Makefile changes for the
new binary rather than changing the existing smbclient make

cheers, jerry
