That may be the case however if a directory is 755, and files within a 600, then what should Scribus
follow? There would be a reason someone has set them to 600 rather than 755 (whether that be
manually, umask or otherwise), and for Scribus to assume that when it collects for output into a
directory that has 755 set, with a collected file with 600 set, that it should convert that to
755... would be incredibly wrong.
