Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!

+Smbfs is a filesystem that implements the SMB protocol, which is the
+protocol used by Windows for Workgroups, Windows 95 and Windows NT.
+Smbfs was inspired by Samba, the program written by Andrew Tridgell
+that turns any Unix host into a file server for DOS or Windows clients.
+Smbfs is a SMB client, but uses parts of samba for it's operation. For
