Then the BUG entry doesn't say what it means and will waste people's
time trying to figure out what it does mean.
I still think the BUGS section should be removed.
Or I can make a new patch with:
There is no "perm" option which sets the sticky bit and also unsets
the execute/search bit, and vice-versa, depending upon the "op"
value. The same applies to each of the setuid and setgid bits.
There once was a man from Nantucket...
I sure don't see that as a BUG; just a (good) design decision.
