I'd be interested in finding out whatever information comes of your query as

In short, I've added a Samba file sharing server to an existing

administrator there is complaining about the "chunky" permissions scheme (he 
can't revoke "part of" the write access in the Windows security tab for the 
share - any "write" box checked ends up coming back as "full access" on 
update, I presume because it's just being mapped to the *nix "write" 
permission rather than enforcing the more fine-grained permissions which I 
gathered should have been stored as extended attributes...)

Is the capability to support the Windows permissions model new in 3.0.11 or
