what exactly is the problem with config.inc.php being world readable?

issnt every file readable by the web server 'somehow' world readable?

and issnt it so if

   /www is only user and group readable



is secure enough?

or is this just a sf.net specific problem, cause all webroots are world 

(btw. i am a little bit annoyed by the fact that i have now set my read 
only flag for config.inc.php after every change on it on my developer 
machine (Windows))
