Obligations of the Depositary

From the Louisiana Civil Code:

Art. 2931.  Use of the thing deposited

The depositary may not use the thing deposited without the express or implied permission of the depositor.

Consider this in light of advocates of fractional-reserve banking, who claim that the customer who lends money to a “bank” can naturally be referred to as a “depositor.” Really?
