In theory Windows smb shares should work fine, as long as your SID has
permissions on the share.

Given that we can identify samba shares for some time (and given that
upcoming Samba shares will have a unique identification mechanism (see
which makes live even more easy) we could let smbntsec only affect
Samba shares instead of all remote shares.  But that requires some
volunteer testing of smbntsec with Windows remote shares and some
definitive positive feedback on this list.
