Oh yes, of course :)  My bad. 

But I think this mistake of mine is the source of the difference in
opinion. Listing the recursive permissions for all possible combinations of
users, groups, tags and commands is probably not an easy task. Finding the
relevant combinations is already a problem. 

But listing the recursive permissions for one single user or group seems to
be what you are talking about. My argument still stands that this is most
useful not for the individual user but for the admin, so instead of having
to run lsacl with the global -d option or having to set CVSROOT
accordingly, adding a -u option (like chacl has it) for a recursive listing
of permissions seems to make more sense.
