This is one of the many things I hope we will discuss at the WineConf.
There should be a good Samba contingent there, and I'm assured a few
wine folks intend to turn up ;-)

In all seriousness, there are existing mechanisms to get at some of
these packets to non-root users, but they are a bit of a Samba-specific
hack.  For Samba4 (which is where we should plan integration, because we
can design it properly) I would love to see wine able to register for
such mailslots with the Samba server.  (Alternate non-samba solutions
will probably be required in parallel, I suppose).
