Another advantage to a shared group is that you can remove people from
the group, whereas if you have a shared key, and you don't want someone
to have access any more, you'd have to re-key & reissue the key (and
make sure you remember where all those keys are used!).

I have a number of subcontractors working for me, and occasionally I
stop working with one, and I need to revoke all access. The easiest way
is to simply lock their account, and if I use a group access technique
then that's all I need to do.
