Yeah that was me.  I never actually finished `hat'.  I might get around to
it.  I noticed that 'newgrp' is pretty much the same command, except
that it only changes your primary group.  One could implement 'hat' as
a patch on newgrp.  And call it newgrps perhaps.

I have a fairly free week this coming week so I'll see if I can fit
it on my TODO list.
