I hacked it up for a test with 2.4 at a customer site. Anton
has also got a hacked version that does this.

It'll probably go in sometime in the 2.2.x Samba series when
we've got more time to experiment (and only with Linux 2.4.x
kernel oplocked files for safety).


Buying an operating system without source is like buying
a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
