How does this differ from our current group `games' ?  Group `games'
hold scorefiles, savegames, etc.  Basically, people in group `games'
(and people who can exploit games that are setgid games) can cheat and
get their name in the scorefiles anyway, and can mess up other
people's games, and can get access to the accounts of people who run
badly-written games (those which are vulnerable to corrupted data,
which will be most).
