[Distutils] Unix permissions of installed files

Depending on the users umask settings, or the accress rights of the
files to be installed, users installing software have to invoke chmod
to get access permissions rights corrected for some files. This is
especially true for *.pth files which get no read permissions for
world. This step is often forgotten by the users. Is there a distutils
way to get this right, or do I have to to extend my setuppy's?
