Sure, I could use sshfs instead of cifs. But that still leaves the
question of how to do the dynamic mounting. I do not want to type in
some mount command before I can access the share. Rather, it should just
be there, whenever I need it and can access it. So that leads me to
autofs again, but then there's not a real difference between sshfs and
cifs, right? Or is there some easier way to accomplish this with sshfs?
