AFAIK, the samba library bundled with mc counts no ages. Not only it
needs a rework, but it has to be throw out completely and replaced with
a wrapper for some well supported samba library.

So what are you talking about is entirely possible, although I don't
think we can provide you with a solution ATM before the VFS rewrite
(which has not even started yet) is completed.
