Not mainly because it's Unix-specific, but because I don't think it
really solves the problem. Most of the problems seem to occur when
you mix different access methods, so any real fix need to be
independant of the access method.

If it is to be implemented for all access methods, I think that the
fact that the umask is process global is a problem for ra_dav as well,
since it too can be threaded. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

A solution could perhaps be to only check that the current umask is
correct, and abort if not. That would prevent repository "corruption"
and let the user fix the problem. Unfortunately I'm not sure if it's
possible to read the umask without setting it. Anyone?
