[Samba] I think this would be pretty cool

Would it be possible to change or add another mounting method for samba,
instead of using 


smbclient -L <host> -U <username>


To change this to use the standard URI format of 


smbclient smb://<username>:<password>@<host>


and to mount


mount smb://<username>:<password>@<host>/<shared folder>


The current format is fine but if we could use a standard format for all
network access it would improve the consistency.






PS. It would also be nice to use the same format for nfs etc. how likely do
you think it is that the community at large would be willing to accept this
format, we already use this method for http ftp and similar? Any thoughts
are welcome.
