Since the umask change is, essentially, to share files beyond what
most users' normal umasks are, this is essentially a silent
degradation of security; not something that should be taken lightly.

An explicit approach would be to add an option, "--shared-repository",
or something, but I think that that's roughly the same as adding
a wrapper, anyway.
