Are we debating about the state of existing infrastructure, or theoretically
ideal infrastructure? Honest question.  .htaccess is an example of existing
infrastructure built around the ACL approach.  If no similarly-easy-to-use
capability-based infrastructure exists, that doesn't necessarily mean ACLs
are theoretically better.  But the thread subject line seems to suggest
we're more interested in theory.
