Cygwin has always had to deal with Windows ACLs and ACEs, mostly behind the 
scenes following a Solaris model until 1.7, moving towards POSIX in 2.4, then 
more comprehensively and overtly from 2.5, to provide RFC and POSIX compliance, 
reducing Solaris influence, and better NIS, NFS, and Samba support.
