not feasible, as PASSWD env var is already used.
And anyway, by using it I have the same error:

[calin at calin ~]$ sudo mount //sambaserver/share /local/mountpoint -o
mount: block device //sambaserver/share is write-protected, mounting
mount: cannot mount block device //sambaserver/share read-only

Now this becomes weirder:

[calin at calin ~]$ man mount.cifs
No manual entry for mount.cifs

[calin at calin ~]$ yum search mount.cifs
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit, remove-with-leaves, security
Warning: No matches found for: mount.cifs
No Matches found

man mount:

Mount options for cifs
       See  the  options  section  of the mount.cifs(8) man page
(samba-client package
       must be installed).

[calin at calin ~]$ yum list samba-client
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit, remove-with-leaves, security

samba-client.x86_64                            3.5.4-62.fc13

Any ideea where I could find that man for mount.cifs? :)
