It seems like the problem here is that chown is defined to take -1 for
the arguments, where the underlying platform may define chown taking
unsigned uid/gid.

I think in the short term we will need to apply a patch like one of the
ones included here, but in the long term maybe something like
"chown(path, uid = None, gid = None)"?  With "chown(path, gid = 69)". 
Does it make sense to use None instead of -1 in the long term?
