I believe you're missing the point that the user isn't using NFS - this
isn't shared files over a network, it's shared files over a shared
disk.  And a mask of 770 only means that it will preserve other
permissions AFAIK - it won't set them.

I would agree that it is broken Unix, the point was just to demonstrate
that a solution has been implemented somewhere else, and that it should
be possible.

I disagree that OSX is closer to windows than linux.  The small amount
of unix it inherits from darwin makes it orders of magnitude more
robust than 'doze :).
