That's what I'm doing now, but that means I have to chgrp every time packages 
are installed or updated.  One package isn't really a problem, but doing this 
for many packages is.  I have to know all file paths associated with every 
installed/updated package and chgrp( -R) on all of them (which can be time 
consuming).  Even using -R sometimes won't do because some subdirectories' 
groups would need to remain.

Would adding cmd line arguments for user/group to setup.exe be possible?
