Why not version permissions like Arch does?

chmod +x hello
tla make-log
tla commit


Probably nobody implemented it yet. :-)

Following darcs manual, it would be great to enhance patch set of
addtional `file permission' patch type, but it will probably require some
research on how to represent cross-platform permission changes in the best

PS: don't get me wrong, I'm also hurt by darcs not preserving permission
changes on script in MICO demos/test suite, but it seems permission
restore script seems to be the way to go for the moment.
