OpenBSD doesn't support Windows shares(SMB) natively.. in fact, the only network file system supported is NFS.

Sharity-Light is actually a type of "translation proxy", it utilizes the NFS support available.. allowing the Windows share to be mounted traditionally.

Samba on OpenBSD is mostly intended for people wanting to share files with Windows clients.. as a server, the client functionality is provided through a few command line utilities. (The share isn't actually mounted.)

Sorry for the disappointment.. FreeBSD/Linux support that by using FUSE(Filesystem in Userspace), but personally.. I don't think that should be ported to OpenBSD.
