Can you provide more information about why it is necessary to expose
this in the user interface?

Comment 3 Behdad Esfahbod 2004-02-10 22:52:12 UTC
Because this is the name that is seen from a remote machine, so a
users typically want to set it.

Even if you cannot set it, at least it should somehow handle the case
when you want to share both /home/user1/music and /home/user2/music. 
Then when you want to handle this, the cleanest way I can think of is
to select something like music-1 music-2, ... and let user adjust it.

Comment 5 Brent Fox 2004-05-24 19:51:37 UTC
Philip: sure, go ahead.

This will also make sure that if you are in edit-mode, and the sharename
already exist .. that it will be made unique by adding "-#" at the end of the
