I understand - I just disagree.  ;-)

In any event, I don't think either of us are going anywhere new here. 
I'd love EA support, just prefer to wait for the OS to be capable of
supporting it properly as well as GNOME.

Before that time, tho, it would be most lovely to see Nautilus support
at least basic EA/ACL editing, and also make sure it cleanly handles
copying and moving files about with losing EA info.  That's a step
that's beneficial no matter how one looks at it.  ^,^
