"programmatically".  I have over 25,000 files and 1,500 subdirectories 
in my build tree.  I *really* don't want to have to use a GUI on all 
those by hand.

It looks as though this will work:

setfacl -d g:544    fn
setfacl -d u:500    fn
setfacl -d d:g:544  fn
setfacl -d d:u:500  fn


setfacl -d g:544,u:500,d:g:544,d:u:500 fn

*This* I can put in a script.
