Need to break Windows and Mac sharing types apart
Looks like we were wrong when we decided that "Windows and Mac" were the same as far as ACLs are concerned. In truth, it appears that Macs are much happier with Unix sharing permissions.
Proposal: Break existing sharing type drop-downs into three categories:
Make "Mac == Unix" behind the scenes, but only behind the scenes for now. There may be a later time when we support Open Directory and find that in that scenario, Mac + OpenDirectory = ACLs (e.g. not "Unix"), but if we make a separate category (and tag datasets appropriately) for "Mac", we can do that seamlessly without having to change the documentation.

This is not resolved. Screenshot attached. See me if you have questions.
If you click the radio button that says windows/mac you get ACLS. Those don't work with AFP.

I'm going to do the easy thing here and just change the labels of the radio buttons...otherwise we need to do a bunch of work to add metadata files to keep the correct radio button selected, which doesn't do anything.
