Remember that one goal of this project is to get closer to upstream, rather
than farther away. Given that and the short time cycle between releases, it
probably makes more sense to wait for the next (2.6-based) release, rather 
than add-on ACLs to the 2.4 kernel for this release.

If you really want / need ACLs, grab the RHEL kernel source and recompile.  
It'll always be available, and the betas include ACLs.
