  I'd like request a feature...  A "check valid" (or something like
that) keyword for the smb.conf file.  This would validate the share as
pointing to a existing directory.  If the directory is valid, the share
appears in the user's browse list.  Otherwise, the share doesn't appear.

  This is useful for shares that are generated by variable substition.
For example, "path=/shares/%m"    if the directory /shares/node1 exists,
then that share will appear in node1's list.  Otherwise it won't.
