since they all ( can ) use ntfs, yes.

I'd suppose so. so if one was to add "ntfs" as an option.
it would just guarentee that permissions and such was written.
the primary problem atm, is that the ntfs write support in the actual 
VFS layer
is very experimental.
After that you would have to deal with translating unix username/groups 
into ntfs ones.
