Subject: is wrong with

In case of executable files (which is), is wrong and dangerous.

The sequence of commands of from 0.9.15:

umask 077
cat < lib/ > /lib/ # /lib/ is created with mode 600
mv -f /lib/ /lib/
chmod 755 /lib/ # failed with "Permission denied"

After that the system is unusable and requires external assistance.
