- UID24/GID24 (works on all 32bit U/GID FSs)
the format uses the upper quarter of user and
group id to store the context information, again
transparently. you'll end up with 16 million
user and group ids, which should suffice for the
majority of applications ...
Quite a few systems create one group per user by default, so that they
can leave users wandering around with a 002 umask without worrying
about security. So if the external method doesn't work out, my vote
would go for this option.
