	This was actually covered in this thread (first post, actually) by
Torfinn Ingolfsen:

"Better to use this:
   pw groupmod dialer -m myuser
it will ony affect the dialer group, and not mess with any other groups.

	The above will add the user "myuser" to the "dialer" group while
leaving the user's other group intact as well.
