New issue 3011 by allow closing requests but not editing

What version are you running?

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Grant 'change request status' but NOT 'can edit request' to a user.
2. Try to close a request as that user.

What is the expected output?
Request is closed, and user closing the request can enture a close message (or at least can provide one when closing via API).

What do you see instead?
From web page: nothing happens.
From rbt: "rbtools.api.errors.APIError: You don't have permission for this (HTTP 403, API Error 101)"

Please provide any additional information below.
I would really like to be able to designate certain users as 'merge masters', however I do *not* want to grant these users permission to arbitrarily make changes to other users' requests (e.g. branch, description, etc.). Right now there does not seem to be a way to do this.
