I think the user interface is quite simple IMO. We have a
registry key per share and the params are represented by the
individual values. Two things to talk about:

Where do we put it in the registry? The path proposed is
just that: A quick proposal.

How do we cope with the data types? For example "valid
users" would be a perfect fit for REG_SZ_MULTI, "force
create mode" is more of the numeric type. Right now I assume
everything as a string, but this is what I mean by "rough".

Apart from that, the registry data modes is just a perfect
match for the smb.conf shares.
