As long as we are certain that there is no valid username which contains a
backslash (which is a pretty safe bet), this would only require minor
modfication to parse for.   We already assume that usernames do not contain
a comma or percent character (mount.cifs looks for % in username already,
so adding a check for \ in the username would be easy enough).

Just need a quick test though - would Samba ever accept/allow a username
with a backslash in it (I doubt it - but it is worth double checking to
make sure there are no sideeffects to assuming this is a domain vs. user
