I believe that Timur has indeed submitted patches of this nature. I recall
reading that they were deemed unacceptable because of some security related
difficulty in namespacing attributable to ZFS or the kernel in FreeBSd.
This sort of stuff is out of my realm and I am going on memory from a comment
that I read in a FreeBSD samba bug report some time ago. I am sure that a
direct communication with Timur will obtain the precise details.
