Will this allow a shell script to be run when ever a file is created on a
specific samba share?

I have been looking for type of functionality for a while and I'm very
interested in the VFS module you have created.

I required this functionality for three reasons.

1) Virus checking of new files
2) Automated FTP transfer of new files to another site
3) Automatic Zipping or UnZipping of new files

The rename and delete parameter options would be useful for an indexing
