Is there a way to have Samba do On-The-Fly bzip2 compression and
decompression? I honestly don't care about performance, but space is my

I apologize if this has been raised before but I have just noticed
how cumbersome Samba's share configuration process is. Though GUI
interfaces exist, share addition/modification/deletion still involves
editing a single .conf file. This has the implication that the whole
configuration file has to be re-read which currently apparently requires
restarting smbd (correct me if I'm wrong on this - does it actually
update itself every minute like is the case with fstab?)
As this requires killing all open connections it doesn't seem to be
a wise idea when it comes to servers which have to be available all the
time. Any pointers welcome.
