  Sorry.  Since the constants were missing, I assumed the ability to use
them didn't exist.

  From now on, when getting or setting the PERM_ACCESS_* flags you have
to use the new field fileinfo.access.   This is a python-specific field
which I had to invent to overcome some limitations.  For more
information see http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=338916
