What's an easy way to do that?  When I initially setup the directories
and copied the files into the volume, I had to manually go through all
the directory structures and set the ACL permissions.  If I want all the
directories in a particular volume or even under the current directory
to have the same permissions for a particular user/group, is there some
recursive way to do this with a single command?  Currently, I've been
using the find command for type == directory piping the output to xargs
and running 'cfs sa <foo>'.
