Modern Unix systems have a fchmod() system call, which is like chmod()
but takes a file descriptor instead of a filename.  Python's os module
(via the posix module) should support this if it exists on the target

Attached is a patch against trunk that adds fchmod() and fchown() calls
where available. I hope I did the configure magic correctly.

I'm adding lchmod, too.

Just check these into the trunk, guys! Great!

I've applied the combined patch in r59242. I've tested Georg's
fchmod/fchown on my Linux system. They functions are working as expected.

However lchmod is not available on my system although it is in the
header files. It should be available on Mac and some other flavors of Unix.
