Sorry, I pressed the wrong key, so my reply got sent before I finished it.

Since I haven't actually worked with Permissions yet (I'm trying to get a
grip on this). How I think it works in Whups is that you create permissions
through the Perms class. The name of the permission identifies your object.

Here I continue:

An example from whups:
$perm = &$perms->newPermission('whups:comments:' . $comment_id);

As I see it the permission doesn't get added to the object. A permission
refers to an object. So in order to check permission you use the object id
to retrieve a permission.

I hope I am correct here. Maybe somebody could confirm this?

No, you didn't. I hope the above info helped.
