Does anyone know: did this ever get addressed?  I'm still on an ancient 
rsync version, on which I patched the ACL stuff myself.  I'd love to have 
the newer features of a modern rsync, but I'm blocked on these ACL issues.

And unfortunately (1) the handling of ACLs has changed enough that my 
previous work is useless, and (2) I just haven't had the time to revisit 
this myself.
