  I nominate the appended post for 'Non-sequitur of the week', or possibly even
the year!

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....

Good point.  You can't just indiscriminately assume that DLLs are not
executable since that would mean that the user would have no way to
control this behavior.

OTOH, I don't think we automatically have to flag DLLs on a
non-acl-aware FS as executable either.  Currently DLLs always show
up as executable.  I don't know how much work it would take to change
this and I'm not particularly inclined to look into it but this is
probably somewhere in the stat_worker function.
