Thanks very much for your detailed answer.  What you suggest seems very
reasonable.  I use Debian too, btw.

Is the ownership of the /usr/local directory tree the only important
property of the staff group, or is it used for other purposes as well?

With other words: what are the consequences of adding my user to the
staff group, other than that I will be able to modify the /usr/local
