Currently, ACL evaluation doesn't behave the way people always expect on
ADD operations (see ITS#4556).  This has been fixed in HEAD, but not
currently applied to RE24.  I'm currently working on 2.4.13, and wanted
to gather general feedback on whether or not it is thought this change
should be included.  It is a distinct change in behavior, and will break
expected behavior for some folks.

Wasn't it suggested to add a configuration switch to allow turning it off, at least for the lifespan of 2.4? Much like what happened with schemacheck.

Well, no such keyword exists right now in HEAD. ;) If it gets added, then yeah, this would be a no-brainer. :) Howard says he'll take a look at doing that.
