Samba Licensing

Does anybody know anything about licensing the samba client library for
use in a commercial product?
Although, the code is freely available, the restrictions associated with
the GNU GPL make it unappealing for incorporation into a commercial
product. The CIFS client would be a very small feature in our existing
product, and we are not willing to release the entirety of our code base
to accomodate a relatively small piece of GPL code.
I had heard that at one point the Samba group was willing to grant a
special license for a fee. I was wondering if such an arrangement would
still be possible? If so who would I contact about such an arrangement?
