+The @code{mode=} argument allows you to control the access permissions
+of the target file, traditionally expressed as an octal integer. The
+most common value is probably 0755, which sets the ``x'' executable
+bit on the file (useful for shell scripts and the like). The default
+value for @code{mode=} is None, which means the permission bits will
+default to whatever the umask of the writing process is. The default
+umask tends to be fairly restrictive, but at least on the buildslave
+you can make it less restrictive with a --umask command-line option at
+creation time (@pxref{Buildslave Options}).
