Oh, and just after replying to your post, I realise that
in a different sequence of events, there could be a problem:
cat debian/somefile > tmp/debian/usr/bin/xxx
chmod a+x tmp/debian/usr/bin/xxx
Now if the chmod call in the middle _only_ writes the "fake permissiosn"
to the $FAKEROOT file, the third command will not work. However,
I planned to make the wrapper chmod function attempt to work
as expected (as long as it can, above it can), in addition to logging
the permissions to $FAKEROOT. So, there shouldn't be a problem.
