Description Bjarke Istrup Pedersen 2005-04-11 12:02:14 UTC
It would be nice if samba didn't tell the clients that's not in the valid 
users list for a certain share about it.
So lets say the user john is in the valid users list for the "data" share, 
while alice isn't.

if john browses the computer, he sees the share, and can access it, if alice 
do, it doesn't exist, and if she tries to access it directly, samba acts like 
the share doesn't exist.

This would be a nice security feature.

The common way of doing is this is to use included 
files in combination with the %U variable.
