[Samba] Forced group inherit with object move

This matter seems to be asked every now and then, but I couldn't find if
there is a solution today:

I had a need (due to compatibily reasons with old Netware server) provide a
way to get access rights and _group_ownership_ for a file / directory /
whole directory tree, based on the group ownership of the parent directory
where the object is *moved* to.

By default, the group ownership doesn't change during move to another
directory, it does happen if the object is copied. Same problem which is
described here:

Is there any way to overcome this? Kind of "forced group inherit = yes"
