I think this would be good.  It’s a little annoying when switching from
a tarball to git-fetch because you’ll have to add a phase that makes all
files writable.

This would probably have to be changed in the unpack phase of the
gnu-build-system, which copies files recursively when the sources are a
directory (instead of a tarball).

I don’t know if that’s safe to do.  Are other fetch methods affected as
well?  hg-fetch or svn-fetch, for example?
