Then how in your view should Samba4 act when contacted by a Posix and by 
a Windows client?
Give one the system EA based Posix ACLs, and the other the user EA based 
NT ACLs? Or will be both presented with the same NT ACLs, remaining the 
Posix clients job to translate them to Posix ones?
Another question: How would you treat the Take ownership NT right?
