Only admins can delete tickets. The rest is a little obscure in that  
Edit for an authenticated user means they can update the ticket, for a  
guest it just means creating tickets and commenting.

Jan just added the ability to write app-specific perms help text; if  
you wanted to contribute some for Whups based on your experiences  
that'd be great.
