[Samba] prevent clients from permission changes

it makes me sick for years when i say "inherit" in the global 
configuration i mean "inherit"

in fact a folder has owner/group permissions to allow group write acess 
and clients are able to change them for new files/folders

currently when someone creates files on a windows desktop they end up 
with "-rwxr--r--+" even if the owner folder has 2777

why can't samba just ignore all "set permission" requests from clients 
when "interit permissions" is enabled wihtout answering with a error so 
the client shuts up and is happy?

  inherit permissions = yes
  inherit acls = yes
  nt acl support = no
  browseable = yes
  writeable = yes

  path = /mnt/storage
  valid users = @afp-storage-ro, @afp-storage-rw, @afp-operators
  write list = @afp-storage-rw, @afp-operators
  read list = @afp-storage-ro
