# Shared libraries must be installed with executable mode on some systems;
# rather than figuring out exactly which, we always give them executable mode.
# Also, making them read-only seems to be a good idea...

Yet another good idea to thank Python developers for. I wonder how many years we will have to clean up after their ideas.

Any more putdowns to the developers of python? From one who would do better? Just spare us the condescension we can all do without it.
