File Store permissions

I am using Ferret for a Rails app in which Rails runs as one user but I
have
other processes that run as a different user that modify the ferret
index.
This is done in large part to mitigate the damage if a major exploit is
found
in Rails again.

The problem is Ferret creates all its index files with rw for the user
only.
I have included a small patch that changes Ferret to create these files
with
the rw permissions for the group based on the parent directory
permissions.

Could this patch or similar find its way into the official releases?

A read only file store mode would also be usefull but not essential.

Thanks,
Quinn
