perhaps I fail to understand you point of view but actually you only 
need to rewrite the script when a new unix group is created, which 
isn't a very common operation.

hmmm, I already have an unique place where my configuration is edited and 
it isn't necessary install binary files in windows clients. Also I don't 
consider preexec a big trouble since AFAIK it is only executed in the 
initial share connection and occasionally after a reconnection.
