native posix permissions

I wonder if it's a good idea to add calls to the samba servers that  
would export _unix_ file permission read and write functions to clients.

These could for example be used by Win32 shell extensions to handle the  
native unix permissions directly, thus avoiding any strange effects (for  
the average user) introduced by the permission bit <-> acl mapping.

I wonder what would be the best and easiest strategy to implement that:  
ioctls or rpcs?
