Brainstorming... What two new share parameters:

"share read user" and "share write user".

In security=share, any share not having either of them is
rejected access. The user named in the parameters is then
treated as if it came from session setup. Not sure, but this
might also work with winbind users.

Then we might remove all the guessing magic.
