Bug#848142: default permissions on new HOMES (0755 -> 075[0|1])

I grew up in a community where sharing was the norm and non-sharing was
explicit.  We used ~/pub/ for files intended for others and ~/priv/ for
files ment to be private.  The files in ~/ (normally configuration etc)
was accessable to others by default, so we could learn from each other
with little friction.  So to me it is natural for home directories to
have 0755.  I wish the kids of today would grow up in such community

What do you mean here?  How would this work with 0750?

Happy hacking
