Exactly. I can't imagine a company that doesn't make use of it.
And the lack of ACL support in Nautilus is a real pain. People need to
use Windows (to connect via samba) to have a GUI for ACLs. And command
line is really no option for them.

I suppose hidding some rights is a "wonderful" idea similiar to Windows
"hide extensions" by default.
