So I guess this is what all this really comes down to: Do we care about

Hey, Steve Grubb, are you the shadow-utils maintainer? Whoever the
shadow-utils maintainer(s) is/are, do you want to agree to put this up
to a FESCo vote? If FESCo says yes to certification, things stay as is.
If no, shadow-utils gets set 755 like every other binary on the system.

Your other option is to stand your ground as is your maintainer
privilege. :P
