[MBS] SetPermission: what is the old way?

Hello!

I'm reading this in FolderItem.PermissionsMBS.SetPermissions:
If you set Oldway = false, you use the newer API which read unix permissions, but not the old ones.

and I'm wondering what are the old ones (which, in turn, would help me understand what are the new ones).

Ok, thank you!

Thanks; this is already documented, unlike what means the old way.

The new one is unix permissions, the old one was Apple File Sharing permissions.
The old way is not supported for 64bit.
