At the university, we avoid ACLs on the file systems because the
backup system is not able to restore them and our file servers do not
handle ACLs the same way.  I suspect at least one of the reasons apply
in Debian Edu as well (the restore problem), and thus we should avoid
ACLs as well.

I believe it is possible to specify extra mount options in the partman
setup, and it seem like the most sensible place do to it.

Happy hacking,
