 This would be great, especially if we want to start making BB "bare-metal
 restore" capable.

 In case this would break backwards compatibility with really old clients,
 there is always the possibility of "Add a switch, functionality is
 disabled by default": if somebody wants to use it, they have to make sure
 that backend and frontend are compatible, and then enable the ACL feature
 themselves. In 3 years, when everybody is on a more recent (i.e. already
 ACL-compliant) platform, you can throw the default switch to on.

 I would be very happy to see ACL support for Windows under Box Backup

 It is also official now that SIDs are nowhere near important as believed.
