Why not change the mk/install/usergroup instead to have the proper magic
included? I mean the script is hardly performance sensitive and it keeps
all the logic in one place. I have played with this idea, but didn't

Isn't the usergroup script included in +INSTALL? That might make the
logic more complicated.
