The constants are there since 2006-11-13; in other words, it is present
since the 1.0 release from 2008-12-26, but was not there in the 0.8 release
from 2005-03-23.

But I believe hardcoding 0666 (or 0664) in the code would be more readable
anyways for most developers. A comment "/* 0666 = -rw-rw-rw- (minus umask)
*/" might help the remaining ones.

This is indeed a separate issue, but if someone is going to change that
line to use the correct constants, they might as well change it to use the
correct value at the same time.
