He does have a point though. If you want to use this file format, it
should probably be up to you what permissions you want on it --
certainly to allow another group to read it if necessary. I myself have
not had this need, but I could see it.
Unless the preferred situation would be to use something other than
smbpasswd for something like that anyway.
