You might want to take a look at using ACLs (Access Control Lists) instead of groups to manage your users. Unfortunately, ACLs appear to be new to FreeBSD 5.x, so if this is for a production environment, you may have to kludge your way around until 5.x is in STABLE. Unless, of course, you're willing to run a 5.x release in a production environment, which is usually quite doable and problem-free, but never deliberately recommended.
