    If it is not obvious, I would like Radmind to support ACLs on all platforms, not just Mac OS X. I am aware that it doesn't support ACLs on Mac OS X right now, however, and that's an area of need.

    Changed title to "Manage ACLs on Mac OS X" as ACLs are preserved if they already exist - request is to manage them fully.
