Interesting and useful demonstration.  I didn't know the sticky bit could do 
that.  It was the missing piece of my own setup, which is supposed to let us 
stick things into the common spot, but not trample on each other in any way.  
After getting what you were talking about, I switched the directory from 1775 
to 3775, and now I don't have to chown stuff to the group for the group to 
look at it.  Cool.

Coincidental to the guy we're trying to help, but it sure was a nice discovery 
for me, so thanks!
