so set up permissions as you like them, and then in a user's crontab,
add a line like this:

0,5,10,15,20,25,30,35,40,45,50,55 * * * * echo 's3kr1t' | clog -pipe www

where "www" is the user of your choice and "s3kr1t" is www's username. you
would put that in www's crontab, not root's.

we do exactly this so our apache processes across several web servers
can manipulate shared files.
