Agreed. This is basically why CRLF cannot be supported natively
in Samba - it's just too hard. Samba would basically have to
keep track of every read/write/seek/stat and make sure the
correct length or size value is used for each of these calls.
Attempting to add this to Samba is made a little easier with the
VFS layer, but it's still a very difficult project.
