Hmm. Is there any way to do this for cdrom's too? I'd like to restrict
access to whatever is mounted under /cdrom to a given group.

Btw, affs is providing a feature equivalent to msdos's umask, except that
they called it 'mode' instead. I'd be nice if the option names were
consistent... Would should I talk to about that?
