I think it would be good to have these tools as part of the actual install.
They are in python so they are imho much more useful to the target users
(sysadmins) than a utility written in C.
(I kind of regret that smbinfo is in C, it should have been python too:-( )

Maybe we just need to decide on a naming prefix for these utilities
and then there shouldn't be
a problem to add many small useful tools.
The nice thing with small python tools is that it is so easy to tweak
them to specific usecases.

I think they should be installed but perhaps be called:
smb2-secdesc-ui.py
smb2-quota.py
