A lot of people sent me private emails with their own
suggestions, but all were unusable (like Komba2 under FreeBSD -
I couldn't get it to compile) or inappropriate (like
one gentleman's suggestions of xsmbrowser, which acts
as a wrapper to Samba's smbclient and doesn't use
mount_smbfs at all).

LinNeighbourhood is perfect! Exactly what I was looking for!
I would have never found it without the suggestion either!
