Hmmmm... I'm doing some WAGing here, but it seems to me that the
fundamental problem is that you really need to have a UNC and/or Win32
environment in order to browse Samba shares. If you were running Python
on NT, this wouldn't be an issue, I think. So the fundamental problem
isn't a Samba library per se, but the SMB client for Unix.
Put that way, you might be able to find something a little easier.
