That's what I was thinking, but looking at the implementation suggests
that it's quite a generic way of converting UNIX files permissions given
by a mode into a string of the form rw[xsS]rw[xsS]rw[xtT].

If I'm not overseeing a detail, I would suggest removing the prefix for
consistency and to indicate the broader usage scenario.
