Speaking as a sysadmin I'd like to suggest that the zope daemons make
no efforts to frob thier assigned umasks in any way.  Thats generally
something the sysadmin will take care of during the startup scripts,
and to have daemons change it after the fact because they think they
know "better" causes no end of frustration.
