Description of problem:
Good: dos2unix and unix2dos all these utilies are not retaining the
file permission. Always it is seeting to u+rw only. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a file with permission -rwxrwxrwx ( chmod 777 test.txt )
2. execute dos2unix against the file (dos2unix text.txt)
3. now, check for the file permission. it will -rw------- 

Actual Results:  Original file permission is not retained, it is
getting changed.

Expected Results:  File permission should not be changed.. Should
retain the original settings.

Additional info:

This we can also consider as an Enhancement, it is in the way how we
are taking into. I can also fix this issue,( as the fix is very small
) if I can have the CVS access to this utility.
