I'm not sure anyone has yet started working on this feature, so there 
might not be a WIP branch as a starting point.

yeah, I guess it would take a seasoned Samba veteran who knows the 
fileserver and our async primitives just a few weeks of work to flesh 
out and discuss a desgin and then implement it. But for an external 
contributor this is defenitely very challenging and will require a great 
deal of time, care and persistance.
