Does this work on all POSIX systems? What Unix systems have ACLs which aren't handled by the patch? What selection criteria might one want to apply that aren't yet implemented in the patch?

Is there any hope of having GNU/find with support for POSIX ACLs?

It would be nice if find have a support for posix acl in file match. For example:

$ touch 1 2 3 4
$ mkdir 5
$ setfacl -m u:root:rx 1
$ setfacl -m g:bin:rw 2
$ setfacl -m u:pietro:--- 3
$ setfacl -m g:bin:rw 3
$ setfacl -m g:wheel:r 4
$ setfacl -m d:u:root:rwx 5
$ touch 5/6
$ setfacl -m g:wheel:r 5/6

$ find . -acl u:root:rx
$ find . -acl u:root:*
$ find . -acl u:*:rx
$ find . -acl g::
$ find . -acl d:u::

I attach a dummy (working on Linux) patch against 5a8d448792368366f358d41e1a67853468e5fc92 git commit
