(Repeating myself) Im all for mounting the share and have it act like a local resource - my issue is that it ought to be an OS function - just like my USB stick is automounted I would like my CIFS shares to be "automounted" and returned to the requesting process, on the fly, as a local file.
Do you mean like the startup service smbfs?

Yes/No, it should work as KDE and Gnome smb:// works, just have it done by something lower down in the services structure.
For example; I can go to Kate and open-file smb://server/share/file; edit and save. But when I try the same with Gimp it wont understand smb:// (because its not using the KDE kio file-open libs). Now if all apps (KDE, Gnome, commandline, ...) passed their requests to this underlying automounter they will all just use the resulting file handle as if its on the local machine (the automounter will mount the share locally and pass back an alias, ie smb://server/.....).
As I remember smbfs was replaced by cifs(fs)?
