I thought your beef was with installers, not setting the execute bit
with Nautilus?

I wouldn't bet on it. Ximian GNOME doesn't include gnorpm, and it's
never been considered a core part of GNOME so there's a fair chance that
it isn't installed.

Just because you *can* doesn't mean you *should*. There are extraneous
circumstances when this is necessary, like when people break their RPM
setup, but doing this defeats the purpose of having packages in the
first place... you might as well use slackware.
