That already happens; that's what Bruce Stevens' meant.

When you check an executable into RCS, the ,v file has write permission
removed but not execute permission:

zagzig[23] ci bleep
bleep,v  <--  bleep
initial revision: 1.1
zagzig[24] ls -l bleep*
-r-xr-xr-x   1 schaefer schaefer      249 May 27 09:27 bleep,v*

That's how RCS keeps track of what permissions to assign when checking
the file out again.  But zsh has no way of knowing that the ,v file is
"not really" executable.
