I agree. Deployment tools do a better job at handling permissions, 
ownerships, ACLs, capabilities ., they know this kind of details 
about the target OS; the version control tool does not.

Aside from simplifying the code, dropping the permission thing 
completely from Arch allows read-only revlibs which as people 
mentioned is good for hard-linked trees. When required, permissions 
such as 'x' can be set from a hook, invoked at the end of each 
tree-modifying command, based on information stored in the tree.
