Oh, you mean like the recycle.so module for samba does. Fancy that, it's
there already!

Refer to the Samba-HOWTO-Collection.pdf available from:


See chapter 20.

If this does not answer your needs, please let me know in time before
Friday so I can fix the documentation before Samba-3.0.0 ships and before
the HOWTO goes to the publisher.
