Not that I know of.  This isn't really a bash issue;
news:comp.unix.programmer would be an appropriate place for this
topic.  But are you sure you really need this?  Unless a process is
already running in the directory, or has a descriptor referring to it,
it must pass the directory's perimssion bits before the file's
permission bits are considered.

Yes; it simply calls the kernel's umask() system call.
