That would be *very* nice, especially the "backporting to 3.5.x" part!

Thank you!

(By the way: is there some tool that can manage the ACLs stored in 
Extended Attributes from the Linux command line? That would give us the 
best of both worlds: Windows compatibility and ACL setting from the 
server side. I know it is "possible" to use "getfattr/setfattr" but this 
is not very "friendly", is it?  Also, a module providing those ACLs to 
Linux so that, for example, SSH or FTP could use them, would be very 
interesting. Am I asking too much or is this in some way irrelevant?)
