Scott Tadman:

: FreeBSD has an interesting filesystem feature that I like: When you create
: files and directories inside an existing structure, the group of the directory
: you are creating the file/directory in is applied to the new file/directory.

: I've been looking for a patch for Linux which offers the same functionality,
: yet it doesn't seem to be out there.

Maybe because no patch is required and it just works out-of-the-box?
Read mount(8), especially the part on ext2 mount options.

: Anyway, I've concocted a quick hack...
