Given your strong opinion it seem a lost battle for me, but I know it is
not so easy to understand what's going on when you change the share ACL
form a windows box and still you can't access the files or even a share.
That's because form a win box you don't see the read only, valid users,
etcc.. parms (at least that's what happen in samba3).

That's why I am not proposing to get rid of these parameters, but use
them to build up a virtual ACL. I want to get rid of of lp_readonly()
not of the read only parameter in share_classic.
