What's the difference between this and typing "smb://foo" into the Run

Maybe instead of network: it should be shares: or something? And the
menu item "Open File Shares" or "Open Shared Disks" or something like
that. Or "Open Location" more generally?

Maybe a "Shared Files" link next to Home Folder in applications:, or
in start-here, would be a better way to do the browsing?

To me it makes sense to have Open Location somewhere that opens any
URI, and then a shortcut to the network: URI specifically somewhere
(but as a button in Open Location doesn't seem logical).

Just some random thoughts, I didn't look at the code.
