IIIIiiiiiiiiit's PATCH TIME

Today at work I realised that File::Find::Rule::Permissions had a bug. That is that it only paid attention to the whether the user was a file owner, was in an appropriate group, or was anybody and looked at the appropriate permissions bits for those three cases. Trouble is, there's a fourth case which I'd forgotten. That being that root can always read and write, regardless of permissions bits. Version 1.1 fixes that and is on its way to CPAN as we speak.
