With the following, the share options' LHS and RHS as separated by the
first =, just like always.  The RHS is then divided using (optionally
quoted) whitespace separated key-value pairs.  Keys and values are
separated by an = with no spaces.

	vfs options = key0=value0 key1="value 1" key2="value=2"

Ideally the smb.conf parser would then end up with something that looks
like the following.  (Forgive the syntax... most of my recent coding has
been in non-C languages):

struct vfsopt_t {
	char *key;
	char *value;
} vfsopt;

vfsopt vfsoptions[] = { { "key0", "value0" },
			{ "key1", "value 1" },
			{ "key2", "value=2" },

Does that somehow break current syntax?
