This is because mkdir won't create parent directories. mkpath (from
File::Path), however, will. So you need a 'use File::Path' at the top,
and you need to change that mkdir to mkpath. Actually, you should
change it to 'mkpath $directory, undef, 0777 ^ umask', and get rid of
the $permissions variable.
