I don't see the need for an uppercase "WINEACL" in the attribute name,
especially since all the examples in e.g. attr(5) are lowercase.
Moreover,  recommends using application specific namespaces in the
attribute name, so IMHO a better attribute name would be "user.wine.acl".
Thanks for your work on this :)
