Re: /dev/ttyS? dialin/dialout and modes.

Since the only files that are group dialout are the cua devices, it's
exactly just as safe to leave whatever uucp program it is setgid dialout as
it is to make the devices owned by uucp and remove the setgid dialout bit
from the program. uucp has no more permissions in one case than in the
other, therefore it doesn't need to be designed to be setgid dialout.

Hmm. Actually, it's a bit safer to have the devices owned by root. That
way, uucp can't change their group/permissions.
