for module writer yes (I hope so, it should be simple to port old modules 
to the new system!)

But there some reall good new features :-)

take a look at smbd/posix_acls.c and lib/sysacls.c....

then try to write a module with overloads all *acl* vfs functions (take a 
look at include/vfs.h)

this function should only pass the parameter to the default functions.

then you start debuging inside your module functions...

You can start with the old module system( it works ok when you use the your 
module only on one share)
(If you want you can send me the code when the new vfs module system is in CVS
and I will convert it for you :-)
