#6898: Uploads to Google Cloud Storage should Inherit the Bucket Default ACL

 Not sure if this is an enhancement or defect, so I'll let you guys make
 the call...

 Having read through the Google information on Access Control:

 My understanding is that if you don't specific any permissions on upload,
 then the object should inherit the 'default ACL' specified on the bucket.
 But this doesn't appear to be the case for uploads in Cyberduck.

 To test, I turned off everything in the Cyberduck
 Preferences\Transfers\Permissions by unticking both upload and download.

 Then when I check the ACL on an object that been uploaded with Cyberduck,
 the FULL_CONTROL permission is explicitly set for my Google Storage ID.

 If I repeat the same process using Google's 'gsutil', the behaviour
 explained in their document happens. The object gets an ACL based on the
 bucket's default ACL. Which, if the bucket was created with the defaults,
 would be the canned ACL 'project-private', which is then expanded out into
 the relevant permissions.

 Would it be possible to have Cyberduck respect the default behaviour for
 uploads when no explicit permissions are applied? I.e. the uploaded object
 should inherit the permissions from the default ACL.

 Even better (but not absolutely required), would be a section in the
 Preferences for 'Google Cloud Storage', where the 'canned ACLs' could be
 selected. I.e. Things like, 'project-private', 'private', 'public-read',

 (All the 'canned ACLs' and their meaning can be found from running 'gsutil
 help acls' - but I'm sure you know that!)

 Now that would be outstanding!
