Hmmm, perhaps more importantly, I will have to extend samba.smb.SMB so
that I can cause NTCreateAndX to be called with the AccessMask I
require along with other parameters like FILE_OPEN_FOR_BACKUP_INTENT
in CreateOptions etc, so perhaps I will concentrate on a simple
initial test along with the needed extension.
