and speaking of such things, one big thing I would like to add to
Samba3 (and Samba4) is a really good NT ACL system. I have this as a
approved work-time project for me to do in the next few months if no
one beats me to it. The idea is to use the shadow-ACL method using
posix extended attributes to achieve 100% compatibility with Windows
ACLs. I can supply more info on the design if anyone wants it.

Cheers, Tridge
