adm: Group adm is used for system monitoring tasks. Members of this group
can read many log files in /var/log, and can use xconsole.
/Historically, var/log was /usr/adm (and later /var/adm), thus the
/name of the group.
And as I mentioned, I don't mind making adm able to read the system messages
(assuming we address the authpriv issue and discuss and document the
change). It just should also use the wheel group to make sense with Fedora.
