it's been discussed in various places before that the default
installation user:group of `bin:bin' is not the best solution:
	* security holes do exist that "get any user but root access" 

i propose that the default is changed (in /usr/share/mk/
to root:wheel. this also results in:
	* default NFS mapping of client root -> uid -2 means that
	  unpriviliged client workstations can't modify root-owned

comments / problems with this?
