This may just be my own ignorance of ACL semantics and unfamiliarity
with the ACL code in general. It seems a bit unusual though...

Just to be clear...this patch implies that with richacls you can deny
or grant access to the owner of the file even if the mode bits say
otherwise. With POSIX acls, this seems to be the other way around.

Hmm....guess I should read the spec...
