Sorry, not at present. I think there is a bug asking for it. It
would obviously be useful on linux fat file systems etc.

Well thanks for your answer. Indeed, this is my problem: I'm working with both Windows and Linux, and it is quite a pain in the ass if these pesky execution bits are set once I open my project under Linux. Even reverting the working tree obviously isn't useful.

But for the time being, I mount my Windows filesystem with file_mode 0644, this solves most of the problems. Alas, this also disables correctly set execution bits (like from Linux shell scripts), so this isn't really a good solution...
