Means to *ignore* changes to of execute bit?

Is there any way to cause changes to the execute bit to be ignored?   
I've searched, but not found anything.

My usecase: I use vmware to develop in VisualStudio, and mount my file  
system remotely, but do everything else from MacOSX.  Something  
somewhere is helpfully turning on the execute bit for any file that  
has been touched.

My workaround for now is to do a `find . -type f -print0 | xargs -0  
chmod a-x' before every commit.
