    The difference with NTFS is that there is a possibility to have unix permissions
    working with it natively, with no extra visible files like with umsdos.

    What are you going to do when unix permissions/ACLs are supported in Linux
    NTFS? Default back to non executable?

    How much extra work would it be to map the unix executable bits to a NTFS acl?
