User-agent: EMH/1.10.0 SEMI/1.13.7 (Awazu) FLIM/1.13.2 (Kasanui) XEmacs/21.1 (patch 14) (Cuyahoga Valley) (i386--freebsd)

It looks like posix(2) mandates 755 default modes for files created using

While I'm not thrilled with this in general, when installing DATA files I
find it particularly annoying to see the eXecute bit enabled.

I also do a lot of work where the default umask is 2...

What's are some of the better ways to fix this?  Use "cp" as INSTALL_DATA?
write a post-install hook to remove the eXecute bit?
