While that's easy enough to do on a home system, if you're running a
large network with many users, it's another thing that has to be done. Why not just have a check box for such an option?
With 10.2, you can change it under Expert Options, Default for new
users. I don't remember if that was there before or not.

You can change the umask for new users, but not give them their own group. It's been that way for quite some time.
