Mounting into a jail

I am running FreeBSD 6.2.
I am currently mounting a smb share and then remounting the smb mount
into a jail with nullfs.
# smbfs mount
//<user>@<servername>/<share> /path/to/smb/mount smbfs rw 0 0
# local mount
/path/to/smb/mount /path/to/jail/directory nullfs rw,late 0 0
The main reason I am using this jail is for a webserver and I need to
the web developer be able to write to this samba share
I originally tried mounting in fstab the smb share like this
//<user>@<servername>/<share> /path/to/smb/mount smbfs rw,uid=www 0 0
however, this did not work so I ended up making the share point owned
user and group www this took care of it but I was wondering if there
better way to do this as far as passing through to a jail and maybe
the uid to actually work from within the fstab file.
Any suggestions would be welcomed.
