It's easy to work around, though. You don't need ACL's for this
simple case. And while ACL's are cool, they eventually become a bit
of a headache to manage.
Instead, use the common (Red Hat, Debian) trick of making each user a

Then put the files they both need to use in a directory owned by
group "both", readable and writable by group "both", and set the
sgid bit on the directory. Magic... it works.
