I have now implemented a very simple directory sort for samba. I have not 
stress-tested it yet or had much opportunity to see how it works other than in

I can't make any great claims for its robustness or performance but I have 
found it very useful in fixing my own problem.

It may also help others out so I've posted the results here:
