I tried PropEdit, BatChmod, ACL Fix, and Sandbox.
PropEdit was the most polished and feature-rich. A great tool for the job.
Of the other options, all are free. Sandbox was almost as feature rich, although not as simple to use, as PropEdit.
If you don't mind spending $5 for a permission/flag/ACL editor, go with PropEdit. If you want something free to do the same thing, I'd suggest SandBox.

How do you edit permissions on a different volume than the boot volume?

Very intuitive interface
Powerful capabilities
Great at protecting you from yourself, or recovering from your silliness
Pro package worth twice the price!

should optimize the interface for the screen size of 11" macair, even without the dockbar the window is to limit of the screen height (the button to the editor acl would not even be displayed if not in fullscreen)

I wish this also allowed for editing ACLs. Otherwise, it's terrific.

Just bought it. Congrads on finding that 'sweet spot' in pricing. Lots of developers would have charged $30 without blinking. This utility is sweet and adding the ACL editor makes it a real winner. Not may apps out there that can do this.

It is a mistake to assume everyone has SnowLeopard. However I can't really complain since the product is free.

It's a mistake to assume every developer has access to old SDK versions... I'm running XCode 4, and don't have the 10.5 SDK anymore, unfortunately... : (

Sanbox is very flaky and didn't run on my 10.6 system. So try that if you're willing to trust it.
