Iptables tracking download usage

Has anyone had any experience with using iptables to track download
usage for different users?

I'm thinking of setting up a samba pdc/internet gateway for some windows
machines.  I've heard that because samba is doing the logons it knows
who owns each packet, which apparently makes it really easy to track
usage by examining iptables logs.

I've looked around a little bit, but I couldn't really find out how I'd
actually get iptables to log usernames/userids.  I've seen some logging
daemons for iptables, but they didn't seem to offer the option of
logging which user downloaded what packet.

Could someone put me in the right direction?
