I would agree with the thoughts on the suggests changes.  But I also
understand the limited resources on making these changes.  At least if
we can get these in the "net" command so they are in one common place.

I would suggest that the cancel should also go into the "net" command.
 Just to have a common set of tools compared to the windows "net"
command.  Makes it easier to have people find.  But if it is in the
rpcclient command I'm OK with that too.
