Package: smbclient
Version: 3.2.0~pre2-1
Severity: wishlist

On sid amd64, I just upgraded to 3.2.0~pre2-1.
I hope most of the jump in size is temporary -- maybe executables
weren't stripped?  I expect some size increase with every version,
but this looks excessive.  Installed sizes:

                    3.0.28a-1      3.2.0~pre1-1
libtalloc1               0               84
libwbclient0             0              136
libsmbclient          2320             3808
samba-common          6944            10928
smbclient            12528            24568

Version: 4.0.0

This is fixed now in supported versions, as we now use WAF and shared

These reduce the size of the individual binaries, but the overall
install is still quite large as new functionality and much generated
code is included.  At least it is now only included once :-)
