If it's a system user, I would say that creating a system group just for 
him (like it's done when using USERGROUPS in adduser) is the best approach, 
regardless of wether that is done for regular users or not. Sharing system 
groups (i.e. 'sys') is just like having system accounts using a 'nogroup' 
system group. IMHO.
