Ownership on templated user spaces

I've currently got Alfresco doing it authentication against an external source, and it's using the UIDBasedHomeFolderProvider to create home directory structures based on a template. It's all going well, except it seems that the spaces created in a user's home space have no owner.

This makes sense, as this is exactly how it is in the template, but I was wondering if there was a simple way to make the spaces, copied from the template during the home directory creation, all be owned by the user for whom the home space was just created.

My goal is currently to have two folders in everyone's home space, "Public" and "Private". Public is set GROUP_EVERYONE/Contributor. Private inherits no permissions, and should be only viewable/writable by the user that owns the home space. Am I just going about solving this problem the wrong way?
