The 2nd number are the rights for the user, the 3rd for the group, and the 4th
for all others. The numbers are 3 bits (value 0-7); the MSb is read access, the
middle bit is write access, and the LSb is executable access.
660 = 110 110 000 = read/write access for user/group
750 = 111 101 000 = read/write/exec access for user, read/exec access for group
g+s = set group id bit for the group, which causes files in that directory to
get the group id of the directory i.s.o. the group id of the user that creates
the file in that directory.
