  what do you suppose you'd do with it?  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.
