I have been able to share files between users/groups with out having to
use the world readable bits.

When mounting the required directories with smb, ensure that you set the
GID to a particular group, and set the appropriate permissions 660/770.
We are then in a situation where every one that is a member of that
group have access to those files, but it is not a global thing.

This is working just fine for me at my office on the file server.
