We've been through this before, I believe.. The concern is that it
chews up another bit in the acl structure, leaving not a huge number
left. My suggested approach to fixing this was to split the "grantable"
bits up from the regular usage bits. That's, unfortunately, a
non-trivial amount of work, however.
Perhaps just having a plan for how we would increase the number of
available bits would be enough to go ahead and add this option though?
I'd certainly like to see a truncate permission, I wrote a patch for it
myself back in January of 2006. That thread starts here:
I think someone else submitted a patch for it last year too, actually.
