Like, my os don't multiuser filesystem (builtin that is)

Why should we waste IO to try emulate unix rights
when we could just give an mask ?

NT also do this crazy file IO, why not just feed it some generic stuff
to keep it happy.
My OS don't support half of it's operands anyway.

Not to mention the file examination explorer do.

Isn't the .icon stuff stured in the PX exe file resource ?
