Rubies:

I'm aware the answer is "because MS Windows is inferior", and I certainly 
have no intention of besmirching Ruby, but...

Why does File.chmod() only work on GNU / Un*x? Why does it punt on Windows? 
Has someone fixed this since last I checked? Shelling to ATTRIB is icky.

CygWin doesn't have this >cough< problem...
