Sure, those are requred. But say we have two optional things, like user
and domain, as in smb:server:share:user:domain. But what do we then do
if user is unset, but domain isn't. I guess one could do
smb:server:share::domain. Still, it requires very specific handling of
each type of share with a specified option order etc. A key=value
approach is more generic.
