This one has been set to need info for a while.

Is this just waiting on documentation to indicate where this works? It may be a difficult question to answer.

Would it be fair to assume it may not work everywhere and when those issues arise it will be fixed to include the edge cases, or should the edge cases be dealt with now?

It seems a reasonable feature to have.

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
