For the catia module part, I'm fine with that. I wrote that
ages ago for a specific customer and haven't really looked
at it since then.

I'm a bit worried about performance in the default case
here. In a recent little profiling I've done, the
for example smb_filename code showed up quite high in the
callgrind statistics. This is nothing I can back with hard
data yet, but is there a way this can be done without
penalty in the case where this is not used?
