Ever try saving a Linux executable via Mozilla on Linux? It would not
have the execute bit set -- you'd need to explicitly chmod it. The point
is that wget retrieves a stream of bytes, and possibly saves it to a file.
It does not try to interpret that stream of bytes.
As I replied to Hemal, you can force Cygwin to use the Windows ACL
inheritance rules for newly created files by setting CYGWIN to nontsec
CYGWIN=nontsec wget someurl
