Hi could we split Samba components into separate package?

Hi, currently MPlayer requires smbclient installed, which requires python2.

Maybe you could kindly consider splitting this out so that people could uninstall python2 hell?

using Arch repo here.

Of course for distros it might be nicer if we could offer to dlopen libsmbclient instead, thus not making it a hard dependency.
That said, the python depedency seems to be a result of some packaging mess, I don't think the parts of samba that MPlayer uses needs python in any way.
