10.4: Use Access Control Lists for fine-grained control
Authored by: hughescr on May 06, '05 03:57:19PM

The ACL permissions override the unix ones -- so once you've set ACLs on the files/directories, feel free to chmod o+rwx them -- then iTunes will see that the files are "world readable" if it looks only at the unix bits, but anyone who actually tried to read the file (instead of just stat-ing it) will not be able to if they're not in the ACL.
