You can make ls use the --no-group option and get rid of the
group column.

For user column, I still like to see it as it gives you an information
of who created the file.

In AFS, there is a special provision made for interoperability with
Unix - person to which a file is chowned has implicit 'all' rights
on the file. Does this work that way in Coda too?
