Is there a PAM module you have in mind which could perform such a trick?

I've not tried it, but the pam_group module that ships with pam looks like it should let you grant transient group memberships at login time:

Perhaps it would be worth considering this or something similar for granting access to plugdev, audio and video on a stock sarge install, rather than the current slight bodge of just adding the 1st user to the relevant groups?
