connect-time share config

Is there a way to determine the parameters of a share at the time it is
connected to?  I want to set the volume id and comment of my CD-ROM share,
but since those can change at any time I need to dynamically define that
share when it is connected to.  The "include" directive in smb.conf
doesn't do the trick because that's only read at initialization time.  If
that were read at connect time, I could use the preexec command to
generate the appropriate section for that share.  Another solution might
be to just allow samba to include a partial config file, but generate it
from another process (like the automount daemon).  

Are any of these possibilities?
