In windows, under advance security settings, there are two options, "Inherit from parent..." and "Replace permissions on all child objects...". This feature request is to duplicate those options on pages and features. The idea is if I create some content pages and many child pages, and then decide I want to put specific security on it and each page below, I have to edit each page individually. If I miss a page and they have the direct link, they can still get to a child page, just not the parent pages. If it could have either the inherit from the parent or replace permissions that would save time (or both).
Just an idea. Thanks Joe Audette. More beer/coffee will be on the way.
