Can't we just have free competition between "0o644" and "0644"?

Add the former, and we'll see which wins in real code!

If "0o644" wins, and if people like Doug Crockford advocate the drop of
"0644", we may then consider including this in a new version of Strict Mode.

Furthermore, I'd like to weigh in with Herby Vojčík and ask for 8r644
