Without having the deep knowledge you have about this, it seems to me
that this statement is indeed correct but...

I can live with that as long as can can set full permissions for users.
The ideal would be:
'map acl full control = yes' -> do what it describes
'map acl full control = no' -> enable us to set the "Delete" permission
(and others) separately.
The problem with 3.3.0 is that I cannot set the delete permission and as
such users with rwx at the filesystem level cannot delete the files.
