This is what I was about to suggest you in the first place.

Then I realized that, unless the dedicated user is *automatically* added
to the "src" group, packages depending on matlab-support have to assume
that the dedicated user is not in this group.

So I think matlab-support should either automatically add the dedicated
user to the "src" group, or otherwise leave it as it is.
