I just looked into this and I really don't see a way. While there's a
NetUseGetInfo call, which is pretty fast even for unavailable drives,
it's not reliable. Even if the drive is available again, it can take
minutes in which it still returns a status of "Session lost". I'm not
sure this is what we want.
