Hi Dennis
That's precisely the reason we want to move somewhere else. I've had too 
many late nights struggling with nfs4_setfacl. It looks as though simo's 
idea with the cifs multiuser mount option is the way to go for us. 
Initial tests show that the posix acl is preserved perfectly on the cifs 
mounted share, but I'd better not speak too soon;)
