there is indeed a larger design question which does not only
apply to smb but to all credentials. Thie quesiton is about
wtether to have same credentials for multiple targets or
whether to have individual credentials for each target.
In the latter case I see two options to handle it, either
with a clever OpenVAS/NASL-script or by defining that
for each different credentials a scope of its own is to
be created in OpenVAS-Client.
However, for the time being I'd propose we just use
a "smb_authorization.nasl" analogous to "ssh_authorization.nasl",
ie. have only a single set of credentials for each type (ssh/smb/...)
