custom VFS module

I am interested in interjecting a piece of logic into SMB file sharing
activity and believe that a VFS module would be the right way to go ( maybe?
). If that is the case then I have two questions (forgive me if these are
dumb, I have done some searching):
1) Does there already exist a module that can exec a foreign executable upon
reads, writes, creates, deletes of a file? (i.e. if i wanted to have a perl
routine send an email everytime a user deleted a file, an example ignore the
obvious performance issues).
2) If not, and I needed to code my own, would I start with the "skel"
What I am actually trying to do is interject a simple versioning and
locking function into writes and deletes that is compatible with the
routines I have in a web based file manager I wrote. The objective is
simple filesharing with locking and versioning accessible via web or locally
If this does not exist and I start coding it I would probably create a VFS
module that could be configured to exec foreign objects so that others could
use it. Does this sound reasonable?
Thanks in advance for any help you coan offer.
