yep, that's definitely the cause of it, but looking through the git
history, it seems to have no clear justification.

do other LDA programs behave this way?  is there a reason to not 0666 or
0644 ?  seems like the umask is where people should be making these
choices, and mail being delivered doesn't necessarily need this kind of

we're running into this when looking at a mailing list archiver -- i
want messages to be delivered via "notmuch insert" as the mailbox owner.
but the mailbox viewer is going to be a different user, and they need
read-only access to the archive.  instead, they're completely locked

am i missing something?
