Functionality bit 17
- Auto Add Execute Permissions

This portion of the license file contains the functionality bit to:

Automatically add execute permissions to new elements (programs and scripts) when those elements are created. When new file elements are added to the VOB that are known by name (i.e. *.pl, *.sh, .login, *.dll, *.exe, etc) or are typed to a known element type (i.e. scripts, perl_scripts, executables, etc) then owner, group and other execute permissions are added to the new file.

For example, if the user created new elements (foo.pl, foo.sh and foo.c), execute permission would be added to foo.pl and foo.sh, but not to foo.c like so:
