No, I don't think so. Having a central daemon do the scans
is potentially a bit less horrible. At least in the case
where many users have the same directory open only one scan
has to be done, not one per client.

I'm still thinking about a good way to enable/disable the
backends. Inotify by default if available is a given. I
might try to push the sys_notify_watch() through the Samba3

Conceptually this matches the Samba3 way of doing things
quite well I think, all filesystem specific stuff goes
through the VFS, and we end up with less smb.conf options.
vfs_default.c would do inotify if available and nothing if
not. FAM would be a module.
