I strongly agree with this. I have volumes on my file servers where I very strongly wish I could disable POSIX permissions entirely, replacing them with an inherited ACL from a file system root or subdirectory root. I want to be able to say "Absolutely all files within this tree must always have the permissions <x>, don't make me waste my time with badly behaved programs that set stupid umasks, idiotic network access clients, etc. Just MAKE IT SO."I believe the only way to get what you want is to use Samba and CIFS. It can't be done with local filesystems or NFS.
