Wow - really interresting idea... would be really cool

Using has some drawbacks, because nt doesn't know the unix-password need for
Maybe there is some documentation, about the smb-"api"-calls nt uses when
changing permissions on a nt server (btw: is this possible?)
Of course the nt-permissions can not be fully supported by samba, because
the are more sophisticated then unix-perms, but there should be solutiosn
for this...

If you start working on this, let me know it.
