The main problem is the lack of support in the underlaying libraries.
Even for local files we might need a native library (I hate native 
libraries) to set permissions as there is no real support in java.io.file.

And we have to figure out how to abstract the various different 
permission systems.
For windows/unix this document might help:

Maybe this might happen, though I cant promise it.

Ciao,
Mario
