    Thanks.

    OK - sounds like you're the right person to ask a question
    that has been nagging me.

    Is there a proper way to get the execute bit set in the git tree
    on patches that contain scripts? I think patches
    produced by git have something that sets the file permissions?
    Is this something that can (or should) be hand-added to
    a non-git patch? (I use quilt).

    I put that blurb in the patch description about doing a
    'chmod a+x', but that doesn't seem reliable.
