One thing to keep in mind is that one purpose was to have
a minimal tool that you can copy to other hosts, also running
older versions of samba to clean up there. You have to be much
more careful when copying the net tool! To be safe, you'd have
to copy it under a different name at last. That was why we
originally did not integrate it into net.
