Are you looking at the POSIX 1003.1e ACLs in the ext2/3 filesystem or SE
Linux stuff?

I thought the Linux ACL followed the Posix recommendations. This was discussed a couple of weeks ago with Mark. I think Mark has considered looking the Linux ACL API seriously.

There are two types of ACLs in Linux:
1) Filesystem ACLs, which should follow POSIX ACL recommendations
   pretty closely.
2) Process ACLs (what resources process X of user Y is allowed to use)
   which are a non-POSIX thing only available in SE Linux kernels

I think Mark wanted to look at (1) but actually looked at (2). ;-)
Not sure though, as I didn't write anything but scripts for ACLs (and those only for (1)).
