	Hmmm... this is not exactly a Samba doubt, then it is a
little bit off-topic on this mail list. For this kind of setup
it's always advised to know in deep your scenario, my wild guess
is that you should use a role model.

	Instead of adding/removing your users you should define
some groups that you can add and remove people, it would make
your life easier and you don't need to scan the entire tree, and
you can set your ACLs per group.

	That's another alternative, some C code or some scripting
could make it happen, but I think is a little bit of overengineer.
