distlib creates scripts that are not executable

Using the distlib ScriptMaker it appears that it makes scripts on *nix that are not executable unless you set the set_mode attribute to True before trying to create scripts. Surely this should True by default, at least on *nix?

    Yea that's fine, just thinking. The FileOperation already makes setting a mode NOOP on Windows so if that's the only reason it can probably just be called unconditionally?
