I may be completely crazy, not had enough coffee, played too much
half life, so if what I suggest is stupid, just kick me :)

Couldn't we have directory (such as '.mangle') to hold all the
mangled names as symbolic links to the real files.

Then when a client using mangled names wants a file, smbd will
simply enter that directory and get the file from there.
