Well, we now have ACL support. You can easilly do this with acl in a 
straightforward way. We might want to make a manual describing how to do it. 
Together with the mostly undocumented mount options needed to enable acl's on

Acl's can set default permissions so your script shouldn't be needed anymore 
(but you might want to run it once in a while to ensure that).

And you know what? Samba supports ACL's too.
