It's PHP -- nuff said.  Grep for '0777' in the MediaWiki codebase if
you really want to give yourself nightmares.

Even though I can't blame that particular case on PHP, I nonetheless
keep thinking of porting MediaWiki to some other language, big an
effort as that might be.  But the instant I look at the code, I just
want to rewrite the whole thing from scratch, and figure it'd be more
sane to hack Moin or Trac instead.
