Support for Solaris ACL?

I need to setup permissions for a bunch of files, that's a bit more
complex, then possible with traditional UNIX permissions. I can set the
permissions exactly right, by using the ACL's in Solaris 2.5.

The problem is, that I need to share these files with Samba, to Win95
clients. When doing this people don't get the rights the need, because
Samba don't support/respect the additionally rights given in the ACLs.

So my question is, will Samba get support for Solaris ACL system?

Maybe it's not possible at all?

I don't need any mapping between NT ACLs and Solaris ACLs, but it would be
pretty cool though...
