Yeah.  I've notice recently that many people seem to be thinking this
way "hey if I don't need it, nobody does!"

It _would_ be useful if there were some way to declare which bits you cared
about in a particular project, e.g., {arch}/=perm-bits-i-care-about.  It
might work like: (1) have the other, `don't care', bits all turned on in
the archive, (2) ignore the don't-care bits for comparisons, and (3) use
umask to set the don't-care bits upon file creation.

((lambda (x) (list x x)) (lambda (x) (list x x)))
