You also ignored the case where user might have no access to shell at 
all to mount remote fs.
Also, I wouldn't like a player (or anything else) mount anything under 
carpet on my workstation. Case when I'm forced to do it (when possible) 
is a step backward.

IMHO This discussion is like, lets not to add new codec to ffmpeg, user 
may transcode file with libav for example and use it this way. You just 
insist that there is just one way to do something and don't give any 
other option. Maybe we should just mail samba developers to remove that 
library, because it is not needed. Just my opinion.
