  In chel di` si favelave...

I'm using POSIX ACL, and as Jeremy say, permission works; i've only code
some script to 'sanitize' permissione to prevent bed behaviour (eg, in 'ugo'
permsision 'g' is also the default mask for applying ACL, so you have to
set explicitly the mask or set 'g' to '7').

Only a note:

> Currently the linux systems access files through NFS mounts, so no hope 

But consider also that NFSv3 have a limited amount of POSIX ACL that can
manage (the protocol have a limited 'room' for ACL, so if you set very
complex ACL on some object, you could have 'truncated' ACL n nfs mounted

You can switch to NFSv4, but ACL are different things (rather still
supported by samba).

Currently i'm using CIFS also in UNIX...

  The number of UNIX installations has grown to 10, with more expected.
