Right, and here's my 0.02EUR:
We already have groups "staff" and "guest" in there, and I think we
shouldn't add a third group like that. 

I'd rather see only one ("users" would be a fine name...). I don't know
what consequences removing staff & guest e.g. have on pkgsrc, and how
people in general would like it.
