Using Samba as an NT-profile-server

We have three Sun E450 fileserver serving a total of 20000 users, theese
fileservers NFS export all homedirs to our samba-servers (four boxes running
ix86 Solaris). Instead of having an NT machine serving profiles, we have
profiles over Samba. Now to the problem:
Is it possible to get the Path= in the smb.conf to be "dynamical" ie.
dependent on the machine the request came from?
To claryfy this, I'll make an example:
Let's say you have two different computer labs which require two different
profiles, then we want something like this:
path = %H/.profile/__labdependent__/
What would've been great if it was possible to make samba check a file for
hostnames and if connecting host is found, it should use path= from that
This way, one only need to specify one share. If you have a lot of labs,
it'll get messy to maintain a config file for all the diff. labs.
If it's not possible today, could someone please give some small directions
about where I should alter the code to implement this?
