Yes, I know we've wandered somewhat off topic, but hey... just this once.. (o8


        Having all your dtml, html, py, pyc, doc and other files executable just 
doesn't make sense!  In fact, if you make everything 440 except for in /var, 
where you make it 640, and owned by a "zope" user, this is the safest.

Of course, it DOES mean you have to explicitly chmod any file you want to 
edit...so if you're not THAT paranoid, you could use 640 everywhere...

If you put all the files in a zope group, then you can set the permissions 
660, so only people in the Zope group can edit the files.

P.S.  sorry for rambling... i've just got into work, and not had my first 
coffee yet.. (o8
