Ummm....Couple of issues, if you have a cgi-script running as a
non-root user (i hope so :) ) you may have a hard time updating

Modifying smb.conf is reall rather trivial.  See the
examples/misc/modify_samba_config.pl perl script
for a quick and dirty means of adding/deleting shares
to the config file.
