Actually I don't have any problem about this.
I just want cygwin more colorful as most of *NIX terminals do, i.e.
red for tar/zip files, green for executables.
And I notice that if I touch a new file on cygiwn, the new-created
file has no executable attribute.
Based on that, I wonder whether I can change the default attributes
for files which have existed before cygwin is installed.
