I am working on revision #8.  I've been trying for years (literally) to
get the public review going so that it can conform to the "spirit and
requirements of what a URI should be".

Roy and Larry have provided some feedback, but most of the discussion (for
good or ill) has happened on the jCIFS mailing list.  JCIFS being one of
the key implementations.  Other discussions have been held on the
samba-technical list or at the annual CIFS conference (where several
vendors have asked--nay, demanded--that the scheme conform to their own
whims rather than the general syntax of URI).  :)

I know SMB is a somewhat esoteric and annoying protocol, but I'd like to 
get this right.
