Based on the information here:
and on the manpage for setfacl,

I believe this is what we needed to do:

  getfacl incoming-pre-0.09 > ~/temp.acl
  setfacl -M ~/temp.acl incoming

So I did that, and checked with getfacl to see that both directories
now have the same stuff in their ACLs.  That does appear to be so.

Please note that I do not grok ACLs well enough to verify that these
permissions are really exactly what we want them to be -- I only know
enough to state that I think they are the same as the permissions on
the former incoming directory (which is now incoming-pre-0.09).
