This is how I have it set up, too, since I like the unprivelaged users
to be lumped together to share files.  You could always make the
common groups more fine-grained as by project.  That's how it's done
at my work.  Fedora creates new users each with their own group the
same as the username by default.  The possibilities are endless.  My
main user on my box is a member of roughly 10 groups.
