Summary:                    chown does not allow changing group only
Description: 
GNU chown allows running 'chown :group file' to mean 'chgrp group file'. 
BB does not allow that.  It would be trivial to add the support.  But at
least the documentation should change from:

Change the owner and/or group of each FILE to OWNER and/or GROUP.

to

Change the owner and possibly group of each FILE to owner and possibly
GROUP.
