Yes, this is being added (probably for 2.0.8) specifically
for HPUX (and maybe also IRIX and Solaris). Linux & FreeBSD
don't have filesystem ACL support yet so this will have to wait
on Linux and FreeBSD. HP & SGI engineers are specifically working
on this (thanks people !).

I'm CC:ing this answer to the list as it is hopefully of
general interesst.

Buying an operating system without source is like buying
a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
