There is an implementation by Moritz Schulte, he is working on a new
snapshot release of his development tree.  (The first snapshot he released
some time ago was also functional, but not semantically correct, because it
did provide access as the user shadowfs was running as, instead the user who
accesses shadowfs.  This has now been fixed and he is working on a cache for
efficiency right now).
