/etc/groups is generated automatically from a customer database, and
since the anoncvs user is associated with my account, it automatically
ends up as part of the primary unix group associated with my account.
this user has no access to CVS, which is all owned by a different group,
but it theoretically does have (group) access to every other file at the
hosting service that has not been specifically set to another group.
since new files are all created in this default group to begin with,
this is a bit of a problem.
