This is a good idea--and should be easy to add as a module or cookbook
item.  I'll see about writing something to do this.

Have you tried the fixperms.php script added in pmwiki-0.5.15?
Every time a page is accessed (browse, edit, etc.), the script checks
the permissions of that page's file and attempts to repair the
the permissions/ownership if they aren't correct.
