Yes, but there should be a possibility to set a default value so that
newly created directories inherit from it.

A master what? Anyway, yes, having it on the client side first would be
a very good thing, the server setting could wait. It's just a matter of

This looks to me like a very finely grained set of options. I mean sure
it would be good to go down that much detail, but is it really necessary
