it's often been said that wine can't use libsmbclient because
of license problems. I'd like to look at that assumption a bit.
- What would wine like to use libsmbclient for, if it could?
- Would it suffice to just link it in to wineserver, or would
it need to be invoked directly by all sorts of dlls?
- Would we just use the system's libsmbclient (I hope so)
rather than trying to import its source?
Also, fwiw, I think the Samba guys are willing to multiplex
their listening daemon so Wine could handle incoming
named pipe requests if we want to.
