The user_has_cap filter isn't an easy one for someone who isn't used
to WordPress, and it's not very well documented as you point out.

Here is a reasonably well commented block of code from a plugin of
mine I wrote for a client. It might help you to start to understand
it. This particular filter has a very specific purpose which is to
allow authors to edit contributors' posts if the post is pending.
