Let me try to give a technical argument: Metze's concern
just also came to my mind. In the Terminal Server case, we
can have multiple users on the same TCP connection. User A
does the SMB create call, we trigger the thread. User B
comes in and does another call. We setuid to User B. What
happens if User A would have been allowed to create the
file, but the kernel denies it to User B, which we did the
setuid to?

Sorry if this comes across as mistrust. Maybe we can still
solve all these questions, but I think we should have the
possibility to raise them without any precondition.
