There are a few commands that aren't recursive by default, and still others
that become non-recursive when you select some options (eg. commit -f).

Since chacl operates on a single object it doesn't generally need recursion
(plus it's implicitly recursive anyway - if you remove read access to a
parent the child loses access automatically).  There is a recusrive option
