	Are there any plans to support filesystem ACL's Solaris style?  I just
discovered this, and it would make my life a *lot* easier in a lot of places:

submission:/var/tmp 190> ll blah 
-rw-r-----+  1 dustin   staff         21 Jan 27 23:15 blah

submission:/var/tmp 193> getfacl blah 

# file: blah
# owner: dustin
# group: staff
user:dustin:rwx         #effective:rw-
user:marxmarv:rwx               #effective:rw-
group::r-x              #effective:r--

	...that's a simple example, but it means I don't have to do lots of
nasty group hacks, which fail me often in CVS (among other things).  It seems
like a neat concept when used properly.

Taos Mountain TS         My girlfriend asked me which one I like better.
