Hi Christoph.  I had a quick look through your code and was wondering
whether there was any more information about this ngacl business?  I had
a brief poke around with google and the only references to ngacl are to
the NorduGrid toolkit.

Is the approach you use to have the canonical ACL format being the NGACL
format?  You are right in saying Samba will need a VFS module to convert
NT ACLs to this format otherwise there's no way for a Windows user to
create them.
