The user(8) tool doesn't offer it, but its code does have
rm_user_from_groups function for removing from all groups. Maybe you can
reuse or extend that code to have routine to only remove from defined
By the way, the usermod/groupmod tool(s) on Linux (I looked at Ubuntu
passwd 1:22.214.171.124+svn3283-3ubuntu5.1 package) also doesn't have this
feature, but the usermod -G does remove the user from any groups not
listed with the -G.
