Um...  I think we're close here but I think I may be talking about something

I think what you are talking about is this:  When the connection happens,
you'd first use the "share write user" as the username in the session
setup.  If that failed, then you'd use the "share read user" and try 
authentication again.

What I'm adding is this:  If the "share write user" fails but the "share
read user" succeeds, then you'd want to force actual user ID to be same as
the user defined in the "share write user" field.  That way, there are no
unexpected results caused by having two different actual user IDs
accessing the share.
