Hmm, I often use newgrp when I'm about to do a set of actions where I
want to make sure all the new files get a particular group.  For
example, say I'm building a package in my home directory and I want
all the files created to be group src because I'm likely to move them
to /usr/src/ later.

Is there some other way to achieve this?
