Brian: "On native Windows, "Read & Execute" has no real affect on applications". Why do you say that? The FILE_EXECUTE permission certainly has a meaning on Windows, see

I agree that FILE_EXECUTE is, in principle, mostly the equivalent of the x bit on POSIX. Unfortunately, it's also confusing, since most files have that permission.
