[syslog-ng] enforcing file permissions

i know it's possible to create a file with permissions using owner() and
group() however if the file already exists with different permissions or
the permissions are changed later syslog-ng does not change the permissions

in a future release is it possible to change the behavior of owner() and
group() to enforce permissions or possibly add a new option like
enforce-permissions(true) with a default of false (to mimic the current

maybe something exists already and i'm just missing it :)

thanks all.
