I used samba for years with and without acl's. In schools and in 
After all that time when I'm looking back there was not really a 'must 
have' for ACLs with samba.
It only makes things more complicated:
	- More complicated samba config file.
	- Missing ability of using UTF-8 with ACLs in a right way.
	- What do you think, does the debian edu backup system work with ACLs
	- on the file system?
	... and so on.
