I wish ACL dialog's "Effective Access" would be much more accessible, informative, convenient.

The "effective access" button on the ACL dialog is ... well, it's the best thing in Domino Admin since the server. And I'm only exaggerating a bit. Anyone who has tried to explain a Domino access -- (or an Active Directory access) deriving from multiple sources, can tell you how cool this feature is, and what a nightmare it is to tease out accesses anywhere else.
I would like to be able to @Command([EffectiveAccess]; @DbName; @UserName) to pop up the dialog, btw. It would save immense time building "myaccess" pages. I'd faint if I had a core control to provide it on an XPage.
There's only one bothersome issue: it's with the group listbox. It's always been a little bit "off", and I fear it's getting further "off" as the versions go up.
The biig thing: it only shows one of the group memberships that impacts the user's access to the database. I'd like to see it list 'em all. I do have LotusScripts that'll do this too. It's just, they're buggy. Maybe it costs too much, I dunno, but it needs something. That list would be wonderful to resolving a number of issues with one person's access.
I would also just love to have the "user name selection" from the Address Book, not be a dialog away. I'm sure there's a reason it was split up like this, I just don't know it. I think it'd be great not to be three modal-dialogs deep trying to spell out someone's last name. (I'd really like it not to be a modal dialog, but I realize that's not the easiest thing to set up.)
With later versions I've noticed something's cropped up. I think it's something to do with the uppercase/lowercase of each group name. But sometimes the group list simply misses groups the user is a member of.
I believe this is also true of groups that're listed as "user-only" groups. Sometimes I can flip a group listing between "user group" and "mixed group", and the listbox in "Effective Access" stops listing the group. I don't know why, I just notice they don't work reliably like they used to back a couple versions.
So I would love to get "Effective Access" back to its utterly rock-solid version.
