Ahh, yes. If the patches are directed at linux and not really meant  
for OS X then that's a real show-stopper as the two (linux vs. mac os  
x) handle ACLs a little differently.

ACL support for OS X would be - well, - mighty fine, as ACLs for OS X  
Server (10.4) are quite useful and many are using them.
Here's hoping for the best !
