Dear Jeremy

Since I once thought about doing the same, I would like to know your 
views on the method that Wes describes.
I quote:


What I've been doing, which is dangerous but effective, is setting 
file creation mode to 666 and letting the Samba VFS ACL layer take care of 
everything.  That's worked.

All files/dirs are 666 or 777.  According to my reading, since there are no POSIX extended ACLs, if the VFS layer "passes" an access, then it only should be compared against 
the standard UGO permissions.

Thank you
