I wasn't talking about SYSTEM in particular, but the removal ACL
permissions when they would leave the effective access rights more open
than the chmod mode settings specify.  I have to work on several file
systems that are set up in a way where this would be undesirable, while
on the other hand I'd welcome if I wouldn't have to mount those "noacl"
any longer.  Hence the idea of yet another mount option…
