Doesn't look integrated into the default UI. Workable, but not quite
intuitive. Things I'd prefer:
- Shows the user and group ownership, instead of piling them is as
just part of the ACL. Remember these have special meanings for SUID/SGID.
- First three ACL entries are always Owner, Group, and Other.
- Integrate into the UI (Konqueror, Gnome)
- "Apply ACL to Enclosed Files" button to apply the ACL all the way down.
- Possibly "Apply Permissions to Enclosed Files" button for only UNIX
i.e. something more obvious and intuitive.
