A note here...
>From my testing, Windows systems do not decode the half-ascii NBT names
received from the wire. They compare encoded string against encoded
string. That's probably quicker than what Samba1..3 do.
Samba allows both space and nul padding on the wildcard name, Windows only
allows (RFC-defined) null padding. Also, Samba will do a case-insensitive
comparison, where Windows does case-sensitive comparisons (because they
don't decode and, therefore, can't check upper/lower case).
We're talking about a very few cycles here, but I thought it worth
mentioning, of only because it's interesting (to me, at least).
