    At least the last l-k discussion ended in relative conclusion as far as
    I remember (only disagreement was from someone wanting to implement them
    in sys_reiser4)

    The presented APIs were not the XFS APIs, but a significantly revised
    version, based on a mix of ext2-acl and XFS and some new changes.

    See http://acl.bestbits.at/man/extattr.2.html and
    http://acl.bestbits.at/man/extattr.5.html

    If you think anything is badly "suboptimal" proposal you should have stated
    your criticism.
