Well, yes, it is the MS one, because really it needs to talk over a
modern PCI NIC -- or emulation thereof -- to a host hypervisor
pretending to be an SMB server. It needs to talk to the MS networking
client, as that is the single most important use case. DOS is not must
use for accessing the internet today! I don't need finger or ftp or
telnet, I need a client that can authenticate and connect to a Samba
share, and basically nothing else.

Heh. :-)

I had to Google it -- never heard of it before. I am not an Emacs fan,
partly because of its horrendous UI and keystrokes, and I don't code,
least of all in C, so its feature list is not one calculated to appeal
to me, I'm afraid.
