Chris, do you mean implementation a new ACL model for an existing
Linux filesystem ? Or do you mean implementing a new mapping
of Windows ACLs onto file system acls?

There were some acl tools from bind view IIRC. There's some in
the smbtorture tool (in Samba 3 and 4). And you can always
write a win32 test application that does this. If you cant to
look at it from the unix client side, maybe the source for smbcacls
would be a good place to start.

hehehe...it's pretty much based on peer review. :-)
Valgrind is a great tool for checking for memory leaks
and similar issues. But that's a run time tool.
Or maybe everyone has a tool I don't know of :-)
