I guess there is no such VFS module :)
Another possibility would be to use some FUSE filesystem on a Samba
server, and then make a share out of it.
Take a look at this page:
and there look for:
User-level Versioning File System
When you use a Wayback file system, old versions of files are never
lost. No matter how much you change a file or directory, everything is
always kept in a versioning file so that you never lose important data.
Wayback provides the ability to remount any already mounted file system
with versioning support under a different directory.
I didn't test it personally, but we'll all curious if you do :)
Let us know how it works then of course, it's an interesting topic.
