Is this really true? If it were, it would solve our long-standing problem
of having to involve administrators each time a user wants to give up a
directory in afs space. Currently using PTS groups works pretty nicely,
but it also requires too many grops to be easily managed: we have lots of
directories where just two users are allowed access. The members of these
groups also change pretty frequently, so they are somewhat troublesome.
