Yes, this is what I used before - I simply hoped I do not need to use
them, but it is not the reality. I'm part of the group, so it means
just problems: Either I need root priviledges to change it to false owner,
or have some blind user to install them, or I need to chmod g-r / chmod g+r
for each use for myself, or I have to have two copies and select different
files - and everything means illogical obstructions.
