 during the 7z extraction step. Unless there is a 7z option to preserve
 this, it is probably a bug in 7z. In the short run, maybe we can:
 > As part of the OS X signing process, we are creating `*-signed.tar.bz2`
 files containg the code signed OS X bundles, and we have a script that use
 them to create the .dmg files. Rather than using the dmg files (and 7z to
 extract them) as the source to create the code signed mar files, we should
 maybe use the `*-signed.tar.bz2` files instead.

 Hm. We need the signed .dmg files anyway and just copying all the .bz2
 bundles over as well to solve the permission problem seems to be a bit of
 over-engineering to me. What speaks against adjusting the permissions with
 the `dmg2mars` script (if we can't solve this problem with `7z`)?
