I've asked a few people, looked at the code used for stripping and I
think it's safe to check only executable files. That cut down the time
needed for sage from 5 min to 19 sec (i7-920, tempfs).

I've also noticed that the stripping code uses -perm -o+x  and not
-executable. The manpage says -executable also checks ACLs and owner,
group, other. Any reason why we don't use -executable?
