move_uploaded_file() preserves permissions when the source   
& destination are on the same filesystem, but if they are   
on different filesystems sets them to (0777 & ~umask).    
In ext/standard/basic_functions.c move_uploaded_file()  
tries to use rename() which preserves permissions, but if  
that fails it uses php_copy_file() then unlink() which  
does not preserve the permissions.    
I believe that the behaviour should be consistant whether    
the source and destination are on the same filesystem or    
not (eg if php_copy_file() is used the destination should    
be chmod()ed to match the source's permissions after the

I am by no means a c programmer, but if php streams are implemented the way I think they are, then the following patch might prove useful.  Don't blame me if it doesn't work  ;P  This patch is obviously and completly untested.  src and dest in _php_stream_copy_to_stream are already open stream, so in theory, this should work.  Correct me if I'm wrong.  I'm always willing to know why it wouldn't  ;P

When moving to a new filesystem, what if you don't the permission to change the permissions?
