If there is anybody who is interested in this feature please mail me, since

to port mc to link dynamically against libsmbclient please start working
on it ;-)
And as I told you in private before: Waiting for unresponsive upstream
does not make sense and thus I would recommend starting a common effort
with maintainers of other distros to continue upstream development. If
upstream is stubborn not to join this effort start a "High noon commander"
project or whatever you might call it. ;-)
There are so many people working with Midnight Commander - I can not
really believe that this effort to revitalise development should fail.
