I don't understand what CIFS is doing, and I don't really care. This
is the sort of operation where adding a couple of network roundtrips
so that the client can obtain the credentials required to perform the
operation doesn't really matter. We won't have thousands of chattr(1)
calls per second.

So I think the principle is more important than the details of the
current implementation.

And I'm saying that knowing that fixing up FUSE will be my
responsibility and it won't be trivial either.

Thanks,
Miklos
