Actually, I don't think it does. When I was thinking about the problem back
in April, I was running into the problem that our DB definitions did not
allow for the types of queries needed for "serious" ACLs. We would need some
restructuring.

Of course, with SQL and the right table design, the queries would be *much*
easier than the big-ass mess of DB databases needed.

Some of the semantics within the FS might not be enough, either. ACLs might
need special care when getting copied or moved or whatever. There is
definitely a good chunk of FS work to properly integrate ACLs.

Once "above" the FS API, then we're probably quite fine.

Cheers,
