Opinions, preferences, "get over it!" ;-)

gnupload is responsible for delivering the files to GNU in a workable
fashion regardless of your personal preferences.  What it ought to really
do is check for go+r on the files it is about to transmit.  If not
set, the bits should be set before transmission and reset afterward.
That would be the excruciatingly correct way to do it. :)
