Not really what you're looking for, but I've been using
smbclient as part of a backup script for years.  Works fine and
reliably, if you're just putting a dump or tar file on a remote
server.  It would be fiddly for something more rsync flavoured,
but you really want proper Unix file system semantics for that
route anyway.
