    I agree completely, which is why I was saying that there should be
    REASONABLE defaults coded in for permissions and ownership. Just so when
    nothing else is run the system is usable. After that, use a USER SPACE
    program to tell the kernel to change stuff... I do not want the kernel
    messing with physical files either... That is a Bad Thing(tm).
