should be in config.php:
       $EnableAutoGroupPages = 1;
       $AutoGroupPagesFmt = array(
          '{$Group}.MyPage1' => 'Templates.MyPage1',
          '{$Group}.MyPage2' => 'Templates.MyPage2',
          '{$Group}.HomePage' => 'Templates.HomePage',
          '{$Group}.GroupHeader' => 'Templates.GroupHeader',
          '{$Group}.GroupFooter' => 'Templates.GroupFooter',

could just be:
(:newgroupbox save=true:)
or for a different display style:
(:newgroupbox label=Go button=right value="Create new group"
focus=true save=true:)

You don't need to.

Well you can do that, and it will create the page NewGroup.Index with
content from IndexTemplate, but it will also create all the other
pages in the new group!
maybe this si not too friendly, and I should restrict AutoGroupPages somewhat.
autogrouppages get also created if you don't use newgroupbox, and are
creating a new page in a new group manually.
