Our regression tests currently don't care about performance. That's another big topic. I once had an automated system to test various popular games and Windows benchmarks automatically every night, but the system bitrotted and I've stopped caring about it a few years ago.

That depends on the exact details. There may be a way to map the windows ACL to unix without requiring multi-user infrastructure. I've never dealt with ACLs or permissions beyond the standard unix rwxrwxrwx, but e.g. the windows read-only flag gets mapped to unix write permissions. Something similar might be possible for ACLs too.
