That's not useful. For one thing, changing fstype from NTFS can impact
"compatibility with Windows NT" as eluded to in the docs, and also,
requiring users to modify their Samba configuration just so my program can
detect Samba would defeat the whole purpose of auto-detecting Samba in the
first place. I might as well just ask users to manually specify whether
shares are Samba shares!

Any other ideas...?
