Isn't that the bog-standard standalone file server case,
with user names on the client mapped into the same user
names on the server ?

The clients can easily do multi-user mounts, both Windows
and Linux.

I guess I don't understand exactly what you are asking
for here.

In your scenario, where are the "users" defined ? How
does a client have multiple users logged in ? Are
these local users defined on the client ?
