Well, feel free to modify/improve the page text I have there -- I'm wide
open for suggestions. However, we also have to be careful that we don't
misinterpret the user's intent and thereby confuse him further --
it may just be that the URL was mistyped.

Perhaps, but we need to be sure we can correctly deduce motive, and I
do want to keep things simple from an administrative point of view.
Adding more special-purpose pages may go against that. But in this
case we would end up with a "Main.GroupNotFound" for when there aren't
any pages in the group, and a "Main.PageNotFound" for when there are
pages in the group but no group home page, each worded appropriately.
Maybe this extra functionality really belongs as a Cookbook module.
