No, it's not just a subset it's a almost a completely different
animal. What would setting : 


*possibly* mean in a share context ? That's something that
might come out of a generic ACL. Remember, people are going
to have to be able to read and type this on a UNIX command line.
Hands up anyone who knows the Microsoft text ACL format..... :-).

Remember, the syntax is just "[user|group]:[F|R|D]". Complete
ACLs are so much overkill for this it's not even funny :-).
