There seems to be little practical reason why we couldn't go along with
the standard install modes of:

programs, shared libraries		0755	[*]
data (libraries, headers, *.sample)	0644

rather than our current

program			0555
static library		0644
shared library		0644 most of the time
"everything else"	0444

On the other hand, I'm sure somebody knows one. Comments?

[*] assuming that "HPUX wants shared libs to be mode 555" does not
preclude mode 755
