I know that silly setgroups() limitation is annoying, but I can't
actually see how it applies at all in this case, or how it affects
correctness in ACLs. We don't do setgroups() when evaluating an ACL,
and neither does the kernel. 

What scenario are you thinking of where the supplementary groups
limitation for a unix task makes any difference at all to the way we
map ACLs between NT, posix and NFS4 ?
