ACL manipulation will require DCE/RPC. We have up to and including
full transact named pipes but there would be quite a bit more on top
of that to get to the point where we could even start to think about
ACLs. Eventually we'll get there but I don't work on jCIFS continually so
when things are stable (like right now) I'm off doing other things. Maybe
in the next round.


PS: There are SMB functions for extended attrinutes.

A  program should be written to model the concepts of the task it
performs rather than the physical world or a process because this
maximizes  the  potential  for it to be applied to tasks that are
conceptually  similar and, more important, to tasks that have not
yet been conceived.
