I have been thinking about this problem for quite a while.

Proper administration require creation of groups.
Adding a new user to a database is as simple as adding the user to the
group that has the required privileges to the database.

But, I think one new command would be very usefull.


where the privileges would be derived from the user's.

What do you think syntax gurus?
