I use Bacula to backup to disk and my storage just belongs to the user
bacula:bacula. I really don't care if bacula-sd runs as group "tape" as
long as it runs as user "bacula".

I have a hard time right now finding a reason why one would have a disk
storage belonging to another user than "bacula" and relying on RW access
for a different group than "bacula" or "tape" and thus having the need
to run bacula-sd as a different group.
