This would allow us to both run the tests on Windows and also would remove this weird quirk about running under `sudo` (which is useful e.g. when running in a Docker image).

If a process running as root can iterate over a directory even after chmod 000, I don't think changing the owner would help. Dunno about windows - on the API level we operate so far, permissions only consist of a boolean readonly flag, not much more. On some other level, windows filesystems have full ACLs for controlling access though.
