Hi folks,

Well so far I can print out the SD on the root of a share:

The root of the share:
   SD:  O:S-1-5-21-2069841017-3693496947-3049343334-1000G:S-1-22-2-500D:(A;;0x001f01ff;;;S-1-5-21-2069841017-3693496947-3049343334-1000)(A;;0x001200a9;;;S-1-22-2-500)(A;;0x001200a9;;;WD)(A;OICIIO;0x001f01ff;;;CO)(A;OICIIO;0x001200a9;;;CG)(A;OICIIO;0x001200a9;;;WD)

This took maybe 20 lines of Python. The biggest difficulty was
understanding all the stuff that is there.

It should be easy to actually put a different SD back on the root of
the share and then start testing all the things I think should be

However, I guess that the hardest part will be coming up with a
framework that others can easily add to. Perhaps an extensible list of
tests ...
