I'm not sure this will pan out.  Looking down the road, how will 
you map the disabled/manual/automatic service properties or 
the "run service as this account"?

I would stay away from service management.  At least not 
now.  Service are totally disrelated from file sharing.
Let Samba do what it does and not attempt to emulate 
the **entire** NT operating system.  Given that such 
{start|stop} scripts already exist, all it takes is an 
SSH shell open on the Samba server to manage these.

Just some thoughts,
