[Samba] Sama + Virus Detection

OAV samba-vscan seems to be a nice one, in the future. But at the moment it
only hooks to file open, which is the exact opposite of what I want. I
assume that a file that exists on the server has already been scanned in
some way. I only want INCOMING files to be scanned. Samba-vscan only scans
outgoing files (incoming is on the todo-list), the Kaspersky monitor does
