Only nitpicking here, internet is a network, and nothing technically forbid using smb accross the internet (i did, once), even if it's not really sane from a security POV ^^. So comments are not really informative :)

good point :)


Seems correct, maybe pysmb could be put in the dependencies ? or maybe we could have a section for suggested dependencies for optional features ?


+1 for the latter. Although we already have optional dependencies for optional features(twisted, urllib/2, and now pyjnius ). They aren't mentioned in a consolidated format at one place.
