I agree, given that post doesn't read the profile.

I don't follow that based on Irwin's and Ken's explanations.
The permissions are currently hard-coded to 0600.  The only way
refile would change them is if the Msg-Protect is different.

No, and post uses fileproc so there's compatibility to worry
about if we tried to add to the refile interface.

So a user-provided fileproc needs to change the permissions if
they want something other than 0600, but I don't think that's a
problem. That's the way things are now, and this change wouldn't
affect that.
