How useful/difficult would it be to put the SMB protocol on top of a ZEO 
server?  As serialized formats are build, would this be useful to anyone?

Another use for this that I think would be great for is schema 
migration.  Right now with ZODB we can have custom __setstate__() 
methods that do schema migration, but being able to perform text 
processing changes with common tools would be great.

Just thinking out loud...
