I could have a look on this, but I have no remote system available,
running AFS.

Anyway, one would need a mapping of AFS ACLs into file permission bits,
because that's what `file-attributes' asks for. Returning stupid
"-rwxrwxrwx" does not look like a clever solution; I see the wave of bug
reports rolling on.
