Can you enlighten me as to why this should be a Good Thing? To me it
feels as though the group and user ownerships are now merged into one,
effectively _removing_ one possibility to differentiate. Of course I
found how to switch it off in /etc/adduser.conf, but I think it should
be something that adduser should at least _prompt_ about.
