i already checked configure --help, it wasnt there

about abusing the network...
you know i like to browse the network, and when i see a movie or
whatever i like to just open it and see what's it about.... that without
going thru all of smbmount .... 

some people like more if i watch a movie from the network, because that
way i use their harddisk only for let's say 200kb/s.... which is really
tolerable... but if i copy it to me , i do it at 3000kb/s... which is
not that much tolerable :-)

i only wanted to demonstrate you that there can be reasons, imho of

as you see all of this can be solved with smbmount but sometimes i just
browse using konqueror/nautilus...
