I actually did some Wireshark traces for Derrell so that we could be  
able to create junctions/symlinks with libsmbclient. I then noticed  
that the information was stored in the SMB packets with Vista - Vista  
communication (SMB2) and Vista - XP communication (SMB1) so it should  
be fairly easy. I would add it myself if I was more experienced in  
this field. =)

Here is the original discussion and Wireshark traces :)
