Now that ext3 and XFS use the same ACL interfaces, as I understand it,
the plan is to have a single set of ACL tools which will be compatible
with both filesystems. What this means on the packaging front is a
single set of packages that will support ext3 and XFS.

I may be wrong here, but this is what appears to be underway (based on
mailing list discussion).

Thus, once the common ACL tools are in place it would simply be a
matter of updating the relevant package files.
