Enable additional share options via SMB Plus
At some point wide links = no became the default in Samba. I have a need for wide links in one share, but could not add that option to the etc/frontview/samba/Shares.conf file and have it "stick". It was removed any time I created or removed a new share.
I have gotten around it by adding wide links = yes to etc/frontview/samba/addons/addons.conf, which I noticed is included by /etc/samba/smb.conf, but I really don't know what that file is intended for since neither the directory nor the file existed before I created them.
I suppose there may be others who have needs for other SMB options added either globally or on a share-by-share basis, and I think SMB plus would be a good place to implement that capability. If etc/frontview/samba/addons/addons.conf isn't already reserved for something incompatible with this, that sounds like an easy place to install the options in Samba. Alternately, they could be added directly to etc/frontview/samba/Shares.conf and no longer deleted when other actions change it. Since it's only for advanced users, having them just type in the options, like wide links = yes should work fine.
