rebase db perms seem too restrictive

I expect that there wasn't any explicit reasoning behind this, but
rebase creates a db with permissions that are too restrictive. To me
anyway, as I cannot see any danger in the db being readable by all.

This snippet describes it:

$ whoami
$ od -c /etc/rebase.db.x86_64
od: /etc/rebase.db.x86_64: Permission denied
$ ls -l /etc/rebase.db.x86_64
-rw-rw---- 1 portapps None 86020 Nov 11 15:34 /etc/rebase.db.x86_64

I've attached an untested patch that would allow at least world readable
perms. It would be appreciated if it was applied :-)
