Good luck with that. Keep in mind that unless you're using zfs or gpfs
Linux does not provide anything close to ntfs ACLs. With zfs or gpfs
you get nfsv4 acls, which are closer to ntfs than posix acls, but as
Christoph Hellwig has just pretty much killed richacls, this will take
a decade or more to come to the more popular Linux file systems.
