Those docs are in the samba sources. But note that the functionality
isn't enabled by default, you'll have to recompile Samba. Other than
that, it's pretty simple to use -- there's no kernel hacking involved.

Of course, if you'd be willing to wait a few months, I'll certainly get
around to writing a Samba plug-in. I've written such a beast
(repository->filesystem) converter before, so I know my way around the
Samba code quite well.
