There are a few options I can think of offhand:
1. Everything goes straight into /media or media-based subdirs,
read-only by some media group
2. Same, except also writable. This allows users to physically share
music rather than allowing the sysadmin to decide what's shared.
3. A combination of the two, something like /media/dropbox/ that's
writable.
4. Subdirs in /media per-user, each rw by user, ro by group. This sucks
to dig through looking for things but keeps permissions well.

Thoughts?
