nathan, are the version 2.x tools the new tools you spoke about?
i just checked attr-2.0.1 and there's no multifile handling.
so i brought my little patch up-to-date with attr-2.0.1.
i'm not sure about the '-c' flag. see above for description.
acl continues on errors per default. i think, the tools should
behave similar. so either acl gets the '-c' flag or attr continues
on errors and the '-c' flag should be removed.
