FW: checksetup.pl errors

I'm wondering - should checksetup.pl gripe if the user running it is a
member of the proper group even if their primary group isn't the target
group?  For example, when I log in, I'm in group X, but a member of the
apache group.  I think that if checksetup.pl were able to verify whether or
not files could be created then chgrp'd to the web group, it shouldn't
complain at all.

One other thing - I think it would be wise for checksetup.pl to
interactively set g+s on all BZ directories so that new files would
automatically have the group set properly.

This results in checksetup.pl re-adding it.  Setting it to blank results in
huge warning about files being world readable/writable.

I did this (though data/template already existed) and the script still blows
with the same errors as the original poster.

For the record, I have the webserver group set to my group (pgxxxxxx where
xxxxxx are digits) in localconfig.
