ACLs in 2.2 for non-ACL aware file systems

Does anyone know if there is any work being done on ACL management for file
systems such as FFS or RAM Disk file systems (such as MFS) that don't know
anything other than standard UNIX ACL control? I'd imagine the ACL meta-data
would have to be stored in files that would not be 'seen' by any client
(i.e. Samba wouldn't offer them as part of the directory list).

Many thanks,

Craig Hughes
