I just looked at it now.
I am not really looking to use it outside of samba, so a linux
pseudo-filesystem is more overkill for me. It may turn out helpful
later though for providing a "point in time" snapshot of the svn
tree, that could be used via the existing "Previous Versions"
feature, or for backup/restore purposes.
I was wondering if there was a samba plug-in module for this already,
it would be a big boon for compliance over here because it would
provide a track-changes log of activity that couldn't be modified by
