Hehe, I was wondering when gphoto (etc.) were going to get around to 
setting GROUP=camera.

If everything which plugs into a USB port gets assigned to group plugdev 
we will lose the ability to use group membership to control access... 
or am I missing something?

I can easily envision a scenario (e.g. an office environment) where 
pretty much everyone should be able to access a scanner, but pretty 
much nobody is allowed to plug in their camera and use the companies 
resources to process gigabytes of vacation pictures.
