It should be eminently doable using samba-fu:

        comment = scratch space with trashcan
        writeable = yes
        path = /scratch
        vfs object = /usr/local/samba/lib/samba-fu.o
        vfs option = unlink script = /usr/local/bin/safe-delete %f

I should really do some more work on it - things are probably going to
be a little quiet for the next couple of weeks so maybe something
useful will get done.
