I guess the interface would be quite different. Checking the current
umask and overriding it if needed are standard procedures for apps.
Other than that, it seems it would not allow shared access to $HOME
or files in any other non-sgid directories with a multiple member
Do you see a security hole in granting user permission for the group
after the suggested UPG tests (instead of a global umask change)?
