I created a group in LDAP with the same gid as 'fuse' on the Edubuntu
servers, and I added everyone to it.

That's it. I don't even think the group name needs to match (I don't
know why it would need to match), but I also don't know of any reason
to call it anything other than 'fuse', and it might, in fact, be
confusing if you call it something else. So you may as well call the
LDAP group 'fuse' as well.
