I've been waiting for such a feature for quite a while!! I know it would be
very useful here, we want some logs owned by nobody for use with our httpd.

 After much  frustration, I decided to simply add a umask(000) to the
beginning of main() in  order to alleviate troubles I've been having with
the perm() and dir_perm()  configuration directives. One thing, though,
that I think is needed in the  config that doesn't currently exist is
dir_user() and dir_group() directives to  control the ownership of created
directories. Would anyone else find this  useful?
