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

Name: Wayback

Homepage: http://wayback.sourceforge.net/

     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.
