Hi Elcio,

	Thanks for posting the patch. We probably won't accept this for
inclusion in the official Samba sources as it affects some of the core codepath
functionality a little too much.

How about developing it as a VFS plugin module instead ? That may make it easier
for you to achieve what you want to do.
