A better solution would be a Git server hook which would prevent files
being pushed as executable unless the file matched known executable file
types. Of course determining what constitutes executable file types
might not be very easy. I believe a git hook at the Boost superproject
level would apply to all submodules recursively, but I am not absolutely
sure that this is true.
