How icky.  Is it b/c mac's don't understand the Linux (posix?) extended 
acl?  I suppose Samba cannot tell when the client is changing the 
permissions as a misunderstanding versus purposefully?  E.g. is the 
pattern of requests different?

Yeah, that would work, but it is harder to explain.
I also don't know what people who would set 'fruit:nfs_aces = yes' 
expect.  Would they also want the 'inherit *' to be 'no'?

Does it make sense that some combos of the settings are mutually exclusive?
