Euhm... i tried to keep out of this thread, but reading all the commotion
around these `ACLs' ... I decided to step in !!

Well one easy thing to do would be to write a UNIVERSAL ACL fileing system
that mounts _on top of_ another filing sytem i.e. FFS, NFS, FileCore,

All meta data can then be hidden in a `.ACL' file/directory in each
directory so that moving stuff around doenst break a thing.

Ideas ?
