Jerry, reading a 200MB file from a Samba server (a non-DFS environment) using
a 2048-byte read buffer (intentionally pretty small, for this test), comparing
the pre-SOC version of libsmbclient against today's SVN version, I'm seeing
about a 2% difference in speed.  I do not believe this is enough to hold up
the pre-release.  I may work on it at some point, to try to regain that 2%
loss from the SOC changes, but for now, I suspect it won't be noticed as a
significant issue.  Ship it!
