Well that is how you do NOT want to solve the problem! 

What I would do is when you set up Joomla 1.5x, configure it with the 
FTP connector so that when Joomla interacts with the server it is doing 
so as the FTP user, and not as the Apache user.   I would recommend 
that, in fact, no matter what your hosting platform.   Much safer than a 
bunch of world-writable / world-executable directories and files running 
around on your box.
