Evaluating Windows Security Descriptors.

So...  Let's say I've got a file system that can store (one way or 'nother)
Windows style Security Descriptors with all of the CACLs and DACLs and SIDs
and such-like.

Having that information isn't very useful unless I can enforce Windows-style
access controls (through a custom VFS layer).  My question:  Is there code
in Samba4 that can interpret (and, therefore, enforce) Windows access controls?

This all goes back to a question I asked several months ago about building a
VFS layer that could store, access, and interpret Windows ACLs.
