as i'm working with the group database, i can't miss a quite
simple to implement feature addition: allowing groups to be
members of groups.
currently, the only deeper change would be to make the
'groups' underlying call list members as currently,
and list members of members, in the case they are groups.
same groups should not be delved in more than once.
specifically, the groups programm should also allow for a
special call, showing the original (not recursed in) list
of groups that directly contain the user.
if viable, i might try to help.
