One more thing I should say about this is that group ACLs will not work for
NFS users after the first 16 groups. That is not changed by this patch (it's
in the NFS protocol), and what I meant by "I have not observed any problems
with NFS" is that this patch doesn't introduce any new NFS
problems/limitations :)
