not to disagree, but have you considered groups? of course you say
"more than three" and there is a limit to the number of users in a group,
so maybe you have. if you haven't, the sticky bit on dirs being shared
one nice way to do role based accounts might be to keep the user accounts,
but allow access via sudo. if you can narrow down the commands and just
enable those, then you get logging and accountability as well.
