Samba? Granted, this isn't exactly what you wanted, and you may end up
having to maintain two sets of settings, but that could be a smaller
investment than setting up something like one of the above.
That said, if you do end up using one of the solutions you mentioned (or
similar), it would be great if you could provide some details (perf, your
number of users, typical load, etc).
