Thats fun!
From the info manual on capture templates  
to google "org capture "entry (function"" which led
to the mailing list archive (Thread start: http://tinyurl.com/3fj25gq)
to the git log:

| commit 030960559e24b5b364b6237d223429b5050fc2f1
| Author: Bastien Guerry <bzg@altern.org>
| Date:   Sun Mar 6 17:31:56 2011 +0100
|     org-capture.el: remove (currentfile) as a file specification in templates.
|     You can already use a function like (buffer-file-name) to get the currently
|     visited file.  So (currentfile) is not necessary.

What a round trip :).

A quick test suggests this should do:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
  "*TEST*: entry function currentfile" 
  (file+headline (buffer-file-name) "Notes")  
  "* Eintrag")
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

This should file your capture item "* Eintrag" under the Node "* Notes"
in the buffer you called capture from.

Is that what you had in mind?


Tested with:
| (setq org-capture-templates 
|       `(("w" 
| 	 "*TEST*: entry function currentfile" 
| 	 entry 
| 	 (file+headline (buffer-file-name) "Note")  
| 	 "* Eintrag")))
