Can you explain why it being a clone is important? Could your aims be
met by making it a smbclient command and you using a small wrapper

Having code like sdd.c in Samba that re-invents popt, and avoids using
all the existing command line handling code for options (especially
auth options) is something that I'm very reluctant to do, so it would
require some very strong justifications!

Cheers, Tridge
