So the guest account ignores the owner permissions of the files it
interacts with and relies only on group membership and world permissions?
Why do I need the sgid? Users will create files/directories that will
default to their default group from /etc/passwd, and that's the behavior I
want. Authenticated users should be able to make files/directories with
group membership different from guest accounts.
