UNC patch

I think we should need some kind of configuration for this (to provide a bit more flexibility to end users)
this would means,for example, allow or not automatic UNC operations (for now only binding a UNC name to a mounted SMB share). As in Wine, we don't allow mounting, as a default, all the file hierarchy, it would be interesting to provide the same type of functionnalities (bazed on host names for example... but I fear this would be a bit too complex to do). But as a starter, the option to enable binding should be made available.
