The decision wasn't to only version the executable bit. It was that
versioning the x-bit is the most immediately useful thing for most
people, so that's what we'll do first. Other types of metadata may be
added over time as people need them, but keep in mind that part of the
task is abstracting perms in a way that works beyond just Unix.
Read-only is a universal concept, but group-read-only is more of a
Unix concept, for example.
