If I'm correctly understanding your concerns (and please correct me if
I'm wrong), your qualm is only with the name "Permission" which you
think that should be "Credential".  When you say that many actions may
be satisfied by the same crendential, you're absolutely right.  On my
project we have 6 times more routes than permissions ;-).  So perhaps
I'm already doing what you're proposing but using another name?  Alas,
you could say "permission to modify box" =).

Regarding the foldM, I'm just not used to monadic folds enough to see
them in the heat of battle =).

Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
