Script to list all filesystem objects with ACLs
Authored by: sjk on Aug 21, '08 02:10:12PM
I have a fairly complex single-user system, but even for my setup, I simply don't see any reason to use ACLs.
Same here.

However long it takes, UNIX/POSIX and ACL file-based security will eventually be a deprecated legacy. Original UNIX file permissions, essentially unchanged except for adding an ACL layer, certainly weren't designed or intended to scale to the huge numbers of files on many current filesystems.
