Probably in this case. The other longer-term plan with this
command line switch is to use a forked smbd to access
samba-internal structures via local RPC. This at least
potentially can reduce linker dependencies in the net
command. For that case you don't want to authenticate but
rely on local permissions, very much like the net command
