Most #ifdefs are for the simple reason that the VFS interface has 
changed in 2.2.x from time to time. Same for 3.0 :-)

Btw, when did you look at the code? Some weeks ago? Months? You may 
simply browse through the code via cvsweb.openantivirus.org/samba-vscan

I hope so.

lp_parm_* is for the parametric VFS options stuff? I use my own 
samba-style configuration file currently, parsing is done via pm_process.

That's what I had in mind. Actually, sb was working on a 
samba-vscan-caching server, which basically uses
a protocol similar to the one OAV ScannerDaemon is using. I should get 
back to this person and ask for the current status.

cheers, Rainer
