Remember, there are two different "editcomponents" permissions. one
is the system group itself, and the other is the per-product
assignment. I think it was left this way for upgrade compatibility,
but I can't say for sure. The system group should control the ability
to create and edit products, and the per-product assignment controls
the ability to edit the individual products. (I think :-) )
