GUI for file permissions management

Someone asked me recently whether a GUI for file permissions management
(front end for stuff like umask, chmod, and maybe even login.conf or
adduser.conf configuration) exists.  I know that some filesystem browser
applications like Nautilus provide at least some of that kind of
functionality, but wondered if there was a somewhat simple, stand-alone
GUI that covered that kind of thing out there.  I seem to be using the
wrong search terms for Google and `cd /usr/ports; make search key=foo`,
because I haven't been able to nail down anything like that.  Must one be
a KDE or Gnome user to get that kind of tool?
