I talked with Mr. Rücker about this one.
We are going to have some other changes in the auth code soon^TM.
This may be related. So we aren't exactly sure how your request fits in
So best delay that question to when I know what to do.

What is your schedule? How fast do you need it? Could we target a fix
for in about a week?

Also: would it be ok for you to have a global user that is allowed to do
that or does it need to be the source user or does it need to be any
source user (anyone allowed to stream to that mountpoint)?

That is a very important question to answer the above!

Thank you and have a good evening!
