I did not find as many examples of people (mis)using NGROUPS_MAX as you'd like
to believe.  Customers demanded more groups.  So it had to grow.

As I keep arguing - you DON'T want to know the maximum groups (in 99% of cases).
 You want to know the ACTUAL groups.  And I am doing what I can to find apps
like openssh that are broken, and help them to see the light.  Once it is fixed,
it's fixed.
