    Modify IO::AtomicFile's source --
    Change: ### Open the file! Returns filehandle on success, for use as a constr +uctor: $self->SUPER::open($temp, $mode) ? $self : undef; To: ### Open the file! Returns filehandle on success, for use as a constr +uctor: $self->SUPER::open($temp, $mode) ? $self : undef; chown $uid, $gid, $temp;
    Where uid,and gid are static for this app or dynamically built somehow or passed to your version of IO::AtomicFile... chown $uid, $gid, "tempfile
