Actually, I'm coming to the conclusion that it makes no sense. Are we
really going to have a bunch of ACLs in the FS referring to a group
database outside the FS? If two different callers use different group
databases, they'll get different permission behavior?

Maybe there's something I don't understand about the DAV ACL spec, but
that seems bizarre.

But this is precisely the kind of question we *shouldn't* be deciding
now, because we're solving locks, not ACLs, and we shouldn't make a
simple problem hard by tying it into a hard problem.
