good smb client implementation by using the kernel

A friend of mine and I had the following idea, I'm looking for some 
comments/suggestions on the matter :

Would it be possible to supply smb browsing/listing/reading/writing by using 
a sort of userfs (kernelspace) and a daemon taking care of the actual 
filesystem stuff (userspace). It would allow users to just cd /smb/workgroup 
; ls ; cd computer ; ls ; cd share ... etc.

Can this be done ?
