[Samba] Bulk smbcacls calls

I want to get ACLs (output similar to that of smbcacls) for a *lot* of
files (potentially millions). I can only process about 10 files per
second when running the command (`smbcacls -U ...` via a Python
wrapper), I'm looking for a faster way.
Does anyone know any libraries or other commands that could help me?
Failing that, I assume that much of the time taken is spent on
authenticating the user/pw for each request. Would it be possible to
write something that keeps the connection so that multiple requests can
be made without reauthenticating (I'm not familiar with how
LDAP/AD/Samba works)? I have looked at the source of smbcacls but
nothing jumped out at me.
