Being the deployment guy, I must have done this countless times - copying the ACL entries from one database and pasting into another - one by one. Why not have the ability to copy them all on the click of a button and paste into another?  The user name, user type and access level  + checkboxes may be copied. This should be useful especially when working with datbases for an organization unit.

While I agree this would be a useful option, it is actually possible to do it right now.
If you use the NotesNoteCollection class you can extract the ACL from one database and store it in another.
Or, you can use NotesHound's Element Library database to do it.

You can already do this using Administrator, Files tab (right click on database and copy/paste ACL).

I am demoting this, for the reason Mark described.

Yes, if you can change the acl you can use the admin client to do it.
