It worked last time I needed it (and our FUSE support improved a bit since then). If someone can find a better FUSE CIFS/SMB mount tool and can make it work on OpenBSD I'm ok with removing it though - it was very much "this is a bit ugly but none of the others work" port ;) I agree gvfs-smb is better for those programs that can use gvfs.
