10.4: Use Access Control Lists for fine-grained control
Authored by: Dragon76 on May 09, '05 09:40:55AM
For ACLs to be truly useful they must be recognized and correctly backed up by utilities such as Retrospect, CCC and SilverLiner

The included BSD utilities in Mac OS X correctly preserve and restore ACLs. There's no guarantee that the apps you mentioned will ever support anything more. I fail to see how the usability of an already in-place and working operating system feature is dependant on flaky third-party backup solutions.

Did you just upgrade from Mac OS 9? Then I could understand your way of thinking.
