VFS file descriptor question - can it be VFS specific?

When SMB_VFS_OPEN() or other VFS module returns a file descriptor, is it 
only going to be passed to other SMB_VFS_* modules, or will some part of 
SAMBA try to use it as a real file descriptor?

The reason that I am asking is that I am looking at using a different 
file system API than what is provided by using the C library or 
SYSCALLS, and with that, the file descriptor would only be meaningful to 
that specific VFS module.
