What I meant was: the vfs_acl_xattr is a very good idea. Is there some
other way to get/set the ACLs it stores other than using the Windows
graphic interface on a Windows client machine? If not, that's what I
find uncomfortable with this solution. That's why I asked for a command
line tool to get/set the ACLs from the *nix server side.

Ok, we're on the right track now. Do you mean that smbcacls is
compatible with the use of the vfs_acl_xattr module? Will the ACLs set
with that tool be passed to the module and stored in Extended Attributes?
I find smbcacls a very "unfriendly" utility... I couldn't find a way to
read the ACLs when using the vfs module. My fault probably, I never
really tried hard...
