[Samba] get file information from smb share

  I (and probably everyone else) noticed that right-clicking on a file 
located on a remote share (at least in the windows explorer) provides a 
lot of useful info besides the size & access rights. It does that 
without transferring the entire file, so what I'm wondering if there is 
a way to access that info using libsmbclient (meaning: is this part of 
the smb/cifs protocol specification or just a explorer feature)?
