Yeah... me too. Resetting the previous value of umask is just a
prevention decision because through the program code a lot of files
and directories are created. It is necessary to study if other
files/directories depends on concrete permissions so that a custom
umask value would corrupt them. For all these reasons, I think current
patch is a good solution.

I have to read more slowly the piuparts code to understand it better,
so I'll take a look to this issue.
