Interoperability is generally poor in this area so it's probably not
worth spending too much time on this. One exception, if you have the
cycles, is to test with the Solaris CIFS service. It provides very good
interoperability with Windows environments so if you have clients
accessing named streams on CIFS shares then they are accessed as Solaris

Linux implements ACLs based on the withdrawn POSIX 1003.1e draft 17.
There is a patch, maintained by Andreas Grünbacher from SUSE, that
implements NFSv4 ACLs on the ext3 file system. I haven't had time to
