This has the benifit of using RAID, but won't actually help this
particular case.  See, this protocol is so brain-dead, that the 'copy'
command is simply unused (if you used it, you would see the results
pointed out in http://www.ubiqx.org/cifs/SMB.html#SMB.9 - see the
SMB_COPY e-mail).

So the client reads the whole file, when writes the whole file...
