Thanks for writing this plugin :-). Right off the bat, it looks good! Here are a few things I'd like your opinions on:
Is there anything here specific to linux? If not, maybe we should rename this UnixPermissions? Also, I don't see any reason we shouldn't also accept modes without the special bit. We should also consider additional trigger words, i.e. trigger on queries like "permissions 0644", and perhaps add a link to documentation like this wiki page? And a last, trivial change, lets only capitalize the first word, like "Read, write and execute".
Let me know all your thoughts!
