I think this would be good. It would give us "proper" share level
security, where the password is associated with the share.

I'm not as keen on the "map to user level" solutions, partly because
they can give misleading error messages. The windows net tool says
things like "please enter password for XXX at YYY" which makes sense
for user level security, but doesn't make sense for pseudo-share level
security where the server is really ignoring the username.
