This is what i was gonna say.

It's not like we don't have python bindings, and theoretically
java/perl/etc bindings (through SWIG. I've left out the hand written java
bindings because i have no clue what state they are in).

What is so difficult about integrating support for your custom permissions
into whatever client you are writing to do the directory images (assuming
you are not going to be doing lots of image updating by hand on the
machines you are building the images for)?
