Where is that documentation?  I'm not able to find it.

Indeed, I was confused about this corner of the code, too.  It calls
umask(022) by default.  The code is followed by an XXX comment that
mentions Stevens' recommendation to use umask(0).  Not sure why 022 was
chosen, except, perhaps, that it is often a reasonable umask().
