Make a folder read-write for all users without using ACLs

I just dont understand all of your hassles and tweaks.
It' so simple to do:
DO NOT use a shared folder.
Use a shared DISK IMAGE instead.
Disable ownership on this volume and things are fine.
No problems, no restrictions, no complicated setups.

The sparse disk image idea is great but not really practical if the folder to be shared already contains 50GB of data.
