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)?
