Re: cfexecd and chmod($input_dir)

It's not a huge issue in my environment -- I just have some error
reporting that parses the outputs/ logs and kept telling me that
directories were changing permissions.

But it does seem like 0700 is a very restricted definition of
"trusted", and it doesn't let the local admin define and enforce local
policies, which is what cfengine is all about.
