Er, this bug report only mentioned that you wanted the headers to be
available in a binary package in the archive, not that you intended to get
separate Samba VFS module packages included in Debian. I don't think the
latter is supportable, for all the stated reasons, and would work with the
ftp team to keep such packages out of testing/stable.

Development doesn't need to happen inside the Samba tree, but for
distribution as part of Debian, yes.
