If you set the "Default ACL" on the top-most directory everything will
inherit ACL entries from it. I imagine your Default ACL could be as
simple as an entry for a group that all users belong to, with the
appropriate ACL verbs.

That would need to be handled by the SCP client. Standard procedure is
to unlink() the old file and write() a new one.
