To keep things from breaking, what if the system were smart and
if it sees #o prefix, it then parses as an octal, otherwise it keeps
it's current behavior?

Then add that to the docs. I understand about backwards compatibility
and that was my greatest fear with this patch when creating it.

Was just using org-babel-tangle for configuration files and had some
that I wanted to make 0700 and 0600. I soon learned, that didn't work
out as planned :-)
