VFS WORM module

at work we are currently looking for something that allows to store 
files on a Samba share. After a defined time, the files/directories 
should be accessible only read-only on the share. So it should be a kind 
of WORM feature (of course it wouldn't on Unix side. But that's OK).

So my thought was: Maybe this could be done through a VFS module (create 
time + x days < current time: write access denied)

My questions:
- Is there already a module that does something similar and can be 
easily adapted to provide a kind of WORM feature?
- Can this be done by some who is familiar with C? Or should it be 
better done by someone who is Samba code experienced?
- Do you guess it's much work? 1, 2, 3 weeks,...?

If the total costs wouldn't be to high and we could realise it, the 
final module should of course find back to the Samba project, as it 
could be interesting for others, too.
