Hum, reminds me that I haven't decided yet to attend or not, but for a
student it's a little bit too expensive.

Ah, ok, I wasn't aware of the fact it's only for Samba 3.0. A stable VFS
in the 2.2.x series would be nice, indeed :)

Ok, 0.2.5b1 can be found at the URL mentioned above, which works for me
with Samba 2.2 CVS from yesterday (probably I broke Samba 2.2.0-2.2.3 /
Samba 3.0 alphaX support, so everyone not using 2.2.4-pre should still
use 0.2.4). 

Jeremy & Simo, if you like I'll send you a slightly modified tarball
(i.e. without the dif's for Samba 2.2.0-2.2.3 and probably without those
#if SAMBA_VERSION==<version> stuff) for inclusion into the exmaples/VFS
directory (i.e. examples/VFS/samba-vscan). It's up to you, whether it
should be included or not :)
