I remember offering many years ago to fix this, but then it wasn't
deemed a bug - it was 'documented' to behave like this.

And I'm offering to fix the permission bit issues, unless we're too
afraid it will break existing code. (Someone, somewhere, is probably
relying in File::Copy dropping the execution bit).
