One thing I think you'll want to do is an implicit "force user" to force
the read-only user to "become" the read/write user once authentication is
complete. The connection would still be read-only, but you won't have to
worry about the read-only user having permission to read files owned by
the read/write user.
The system admin may also add a "force user" to the share and that should,
of course, be applied in any case once the authentication has completed.
