No. That program one uses a Python wrapper around libacl (the POSIX
acl library for XFS and friends). It's a little ugly, but it is an acl
editor. Of course, it also lets you change the UNIX permissions as
well, they're just the empty User and Group.

I must admit, this feature would be very nice to have. I'd try it
myself if I weren't so busy (and maybe I will if no-one has found it
interesting enough to do by early next year).
