A VERY interesting question will be whether it will be able
to issue parallel requests. I very regularly earn a lot of
money by telling people that Samba can not do much about
OS/X doing what we used to call rabbit-pellet mode, i.e.
sending sequential, very small requests. If that is still
the default for their SMB2 implementation, I think people
should better stick with AFP.
