Can you please explain to me how does this break existing systems? If I am
in many groups and I try to modify a file that belongs to a group that will
be truncated I will get `Permission Denied'. If, on the other hand, I choose
to include the group relevant to the operation and not another group
that is not used in the current RPC operation, how does that break things?
