A few reasons are

  * SMB2 leases
  * SMB 3.1.1 support
  * Snapper VFS module

It's not something I need to partake at this very moment, but it is
something I would like to do to take advantage of at some point as I
migrate workstations from Windows 7 to Windows 10.

Again no problems but I would feel better having a game plan in place
when push comes to shove. Thanks.
