Creating a new group which contains me and other users for permission attr of just one file? Now its not one file but a dozen of files and different users? What if I need to give read access to a group of users, but exclude one guy, I know he is bad guy, so no access whatsoever to my file. What should I do?
Some of *nix have alternatives for that, but I will not spam OpenBSD subforum.
Just for the record this is not file system XYZ fault.
