yep, Jeremy and I have been very reluctant to bypass the unix security
system and start doing file permission checks in smbd. We are coming
around to it now however as it looks like it will be the only way to
get full NT filesystem semantics in an appliance like device.

Luckily we can now do this via the new vfs stuff, so it can be tried
without a major rework of the core code.
