yes you are, i don't have any experience with unix acls, other than having
looked at some sun man pages and understanding the principles of unix
there are some specific design issues i would like to see in place in
samba, and i am having a difficult time justifying them. it's _partially_
aesthetics / intuition, so there's not very much i can say to people
wishing to jump ASAP out of "nt" and "smb" and "msrpc" into the unix
one other reason i can think of is that if you think like an "NT
developer" you are likely to find that the presence of data over-the-wire
leads directly back to an API, and the API arguments are highly likely to
match the data over-the-wire.
therefore, if you can work out the API, and use it, your job is greatly
simplified: the implementation of each API call writes itself.
