[aur-general] Tarball Guidelines

KESHAV P.R. mentions ntfs and such partitions that, if I understand 
correctly, don't do per-file executable bit and are therefore typically 
mounted with everything "executable".

Is there any legitimate use of an executable bit in a package?  Perhaps 
makepkg --source could just strip all of the executable bits*.  If they 
bit is really necessary for something, the PKGBUILD could use `chmod` or 
`install` to make something executable...  I know, that's not 
particularly Arch-y.

*(except directories of course)
