Re: proposal for sanity check at propset time

Hey:

Is inherit the proper term here? This is a container relationship no?
Properties which would be set on the files/dirs being inserted into the
parent dir are often properties not applicable to the parent dir itself.
You also get into some pretty tricky "who has final override authority"
issues, including point in-time considerations. Seem like ACLs also
become a topic of discussion in relation to this.
