Unfortunately this also allows world writable home dirs.  Group
writable home dirs are usually OK with Debian:

% ls -ld ~
drwxr-xr-x  45 carey    carey        3072 May 26 21:07 /home/carey
I've removed group write permissions from my home dir because of the
programs like qmail and ssh which don't like it.  I don't think
anything would break because of removing these permissions, so maybe
adduser should make home directories mode 755 (or 750)?
