It can't really. You have to be very careful to only hand
out indiviual sections of /afs via a single AFS client /
Samba server, otherwise you will end up with 100% data

If you are willing to somewhat compromise your AFS security
concept and trust the Samba servers, then you should compile
your Samba with --fake-kaserver=3Dyes, set 'afs username map'
and 'afs share =3D yes' on the appropriate shares.
