I think for the moment it would work just to un-archive Pd-0.46-5-64bit.app
(or whatever), fix the perms, then forward it to the cask people.
The only reason the permissions are what they are is becauise the Wish
app that I cloned had them that way. I see that on a more recent machine
the Wish app has everything user-writable so I should probably follow
suit in future Pd releases.
If it's important that cask use my own release file, I guess I can go in and
fix the permissions in the file. This would mean 2 different fies running
around with the name pd-0.46-5-64bit.app.tgz which might be confusing
