What is the general notion on ACLs around here?  I'm still looking for a
suitable CS Thesis topic/implementation-task, and had pondered the idea
of ACLs.  Is that too complex a task to cover in, say, 4 months
part-time work, or would it not be wanted to begin with?

Obviously, I haven't put much research into this (yet), but I'd
appreciate your feedback...
