I agree, that would be quite useful. Most of the files in there are already
set up that way, but some aren't, and that makes people chgrp manually to
enable the adm group to read logs.

There are a few exceptions to this practice, exim for example uses mail.mail
for ownership of its log files, but mode 640... is this a bug?
