Is there any way that support for nTSecurityDescriptor could be added to PSCX? Currently there is no way to set permissions on AD objects from within PowerShell. You need to call an external program like dsacl to actually work with directory entry ACLs. It would be great if this could be added to the PSCX cmdlets or/and the AD provider. What would it take to include this?

Sounds like a great idea. Personally, I've not looked too hard at the security interfaces for providers and would welcome the challenge, but first I have to finish the compression cmdlets... :)

Yeah, I was considering implementing the ICmdletSecurityProvider (or whatever the interface is) when working on the AD provider. However I think it has more severe issues at the moment, like no support for paging, and extremly bad performance on tabexpanding etc. (Doing too many searches, asking for unnecessary much data). Imho that should be solved first.
