Mostly keep an eye out for permissions. AFS uses the first 3 mode bits
(the owner bits), and the Access Control List, to determine
permissions. For the most part the standard unix mode bits are ignored
if the file is in AFS space. AFS permissions always override unix
permissions. The 'x' execute bit is still honored in AFS space and is
needed to make a program or script executable. Only directories have
ACLs, so if you move a file between directories you may potentially
change the ability of others to access it.
