cananian at skiffserv:~$ fakeroot
root at skiffserv:~# cd /tmp
root at skiffserv:/tmp# mkdir XYZ
root at skiffserv:/tmp# cd XYZ/
root at skiffserv:/tmp/XYZ# touch foo
root at skiffserv:/tmp/XYZ# echo A > foo
root at skiffserv:/tmp/XYZ# chmod 000 foo
root at skiffserv:/tmp/XYZ# cat foo
root at skiffserv:/tmp/XYZ# exit

so fakeroot (at least debian/unstable's version of fakeroot) should be
able to handle this just fine.
