	Ok, that's very close to a "drop box" concept.
	This can be done using a "close action", or
	Tim Potter's "virtual file system" switch.

	Both are patches available for Samba 2.0.x,
	and both will allow you to do an action when
	a file is closed.  I reccomend the action be 
	to chown the file to a "project" userid and
	groupid, and chmod it to group-writable.
	I'm assuming the directory is already "sticky",
	so that only owners of files can delete them...
