Samba on top of cloud ?

I saw on Hacker-news this:

tl;dr it's a proprietary mapping from POSIX -> S3
via a FUSE API but also using LD_PRELOAD interposition
in the same way we do for socketwrapper etc. in Samba.

I just wondered if anyone had tried running Samba
on it and if so what the experience was ?

If they want to support us fully they'd probably
need a vfs_cunofs Samba VFS plug-in that calls
into their API's directly.
