As far as I understand POSIX ACLs support is mandatory for s3fs. But
POSIX ACLs are not available when using ZFS, only NFSv4-style ACLs
(i.e. ZFS ACLs) are available (at least on FreeBSD, not sure about
Solaris and its descendants). This is the number 1 reason I am not
even considering switching from ntvfs to s3fs yet.
