AFAIK the FUSE filesystems have in common the problem that they are read 
only. I have to write to this share too.

My idea was a samba VFS that, when it finds a compressed file with a 
certain extension ( say .gzvfs ) allows a normal read access to this 
file but allows to read and write to other files
