What kind of access? read, write...? It *might* work if you set the 
most restrictive access on the directory and override that rule for 
all other files for all other users. But certainly it's hard to 
maintain. Perhaps someone else has another solution.

I would place the special file in another directory (maybe a subdir). 
Directory ACLs are easier to maintain.
