Keep file permissions when doing "Save as..."

When you open a file with - for example - an unix execution bit (chmod +x), it is not kept when using the "Save as..." - function.

I guess it is the usual unix behaviour on files. When you write on an existing file the permissions do not change, but if you create a new file, it is created using your umask and the directory permissions.
Do we really want to memorize the permissions of the opened file ??

So, should we decide to keep the current behaviour ?

It might be usual but it isn't expected or good :-)

I'd keep it open.

Actually I'm not convinced...
In my opinion, "saving as..." means creating a new file that has no relation with the previous file, just the contents.
So the permissions should not be kept.
But, and that is another problem, when you create a script (.pl° file, maybe by default it should have the execution bit.
What do you think ?
