i found a WSS 3.0 web service that contains the Permissions class and it contains below shown method

public XmlNode GetPermissionCollection (
    string objectName,
    string objectType

by using this method permission granted users can be returned as a XML fragment, but as far as i know this works only for Sites and Lists, but not for the List Item.
