I'll try to get that patch added tonight/tomorrow (although I'm
basically without internet until the 7th).

Al mentioned to me (for a completely unrelated reason) he'd rather see
internal and external open flags split, so we don't have that stupidity
of masking off FMODE_EXEC and FMODE_NONOTIFY. I'll probably try to work
on something like that, after I'm back working. Maybe Al or Christoph
would like to actually review this work and tell me everything else they
don't like?
