POSIX :-). This code is very simple, in that it just
detects a default ACL on the parent directory of a
file or directory create call, and if so then forces
the creating mode to be 0777 (so the POSIX ACL will
be inherited).

BTW: I'm still eager to see your inheritance code,
now would be a good time to look at it for inclusion
in HEAD.
