That's just a case of running `chmod g+rw /home/*` though isn't it?

They'll presumably also want to do that to deal with any other users
created before they change the setting, so it seems like no extra effort
really.  I'd have thought that anyone with an opinion about changing
the default will also know they need to run that chmod.
