Ok, yes. As my time is very limited these days I focus on bugfixing and 
enhancing existing scanner support. A re-write is currently not 
possible. And the users request this and that feature, but never "hey, 
rewrite it" ;) The plan was to develop/maintain the 0.3.x series further 
and do in parallel the re-write, the 0.4.x branch. But that won't be 
possible :-(

Basically, yes. But, hm, what are the pro/cons of having an own 
samba-sytle configuration file and the parametric VFS options directly 
in smb.conf? I'm note quite sure the latter one is the better one. 
Before I change this I should better ask the users of samba-vscan :-)

cheers, Rainer
