Err, it looks like umask is unrelated here - it's File::Temp which 
creates temp directory with 0700 access mode.

For sure we don't want chmod(0777), as an world-writable temp 
directory can easily result in problems when running tests on a 
host with untrusted users.  We can consider something like 
chmod(0755), but I'm not sure it's a good idea either, and this 
won't fix at least some tests.

As for the README, it already suggests to run under a 
non-privileged user - it uses "$ " shell prompt in the usage 
example.  ;)  If you think it's not enough and needs to be said 
explicitly - patches are welcome.
