Thanks for the post. We have actually been throwing around the idea of many
different ways to overcome the smb browse issue and I believe the most
current proposal is to use pyNeighborhood (which is a python+pyGTK port of
linneighborhood to the GTK2+ library)

I believe this will be a subject best discussed in more detail after the
release of feisty and could very well be a target for feisty+1 release
