[Samba] Hide empty Samba shares?

When a partition mounted to a shared by Samba folder is dismounted, Samba
keeps sharing that empty folder. It creates a security hazard, since files
can still be saved to that empty folder, and overwritten next time (lost)
when the original partition is auto mounted again to the same folder. Its
also confusing for most users to browse empty shares - no normal person
would understand why they are still there.
Is it possible to configure Samba to hide corresponding shares, once the
attached drive is dismounted or switched off? If not, is there any reason
or logic, why such basic functionality is not offered?
