Forget all the pain you ever had with CVS execute permissions :)  Git 
makes it trivial - the x bit is tracked alongside every file, and you 
can even do a 0-line diff that changes only the file mode (remember, in 
git, every directory tree is an object, and directories record state 
information - so when you change +x bit, what you are really doing is 
recording a new tree object).
