Subject: Re: Logical pathname hosts.

ACL 5.0 doesn't support file versions. I think it'd be super neat if we could get rid of the braindamaged file systems semantics in Unix and set course for _real_ file versions, the ability to make a file visible only after it had been closed, and the ability to abort a file creation and restore what was before the file was attempted. however, as long as Unix doesn't do this, it would be a lot of work to support it. I think it's worth it, so maybe I'll do it. | Now what would be the _standard_defined_ way ... please note that a conforming implementation is allowed _not_ to support file versions. I think you confuse your wish list with the standard. #:Erik -- Nie wieder KrF! Nie wieder KrF! Nie wieder KrF! Nie wieder KrF!
