This is why I haven't submit it earlier (I created it long time ago).
Especially when I realized samba is GPL.
But it can have some advantages:
- it is right you say for desktops where you have access to shell (and
root?), but how about cases where you create some embedded system
without shell access or have no root?
- you should still consider users that are not linux gurus and mounting
remote fs is not what they want to/can do. This patch allows to skip
that part when player or any tool provides some simple gui to enter
