I'm simply trying to set ACLs on a few directories but don't see an option

the info. Thanks.
Hmm, I don't see a recursive option either. You should be able to set ACL on
files in a direcotry with `setfacl -m <blah> *`, and pipe that through 'find
-type:d` and xargs to do an entire directory tree.
Patches to add a recursive option to setfacl would be most appreciated. If
you (or someone else reading this) does work on it, make sure to implement the
standard set of recursion variations (symlinks, etc).
