I would also like very much to have "view own" and "admin own"
capabilities in Drupal core.

I had to implement somethning similar (a permission named "access
own") in a Drupal 4.7 site I operated starting from September
(http://tau06.sns.it/). I modified node_db_rewrite_sql, and then had
to fix some pager.inc functions. In the end the "access own"
permission granted correctly all view/edit/list accesses.

I have the impression that the functionality could be implemented in a
better way with a modification on the node_access table.
