The common way to do that *kind* of thing would be by using SMBFS.
My *guess* (because I really have not spent enough time working with
SMBFS) is that the problem you're seeing is that you want a user-context
mount (that is, only the user who mounted the share
should be able to see the share), but you can't get that with SMBFS.

That's a guess...

I don't know if Steve's CIFS VFS bypasses that.  He just made it
available last week, I think...
