Yes, it's possible.  Is the group name the same as the userid, or
do you intend to keep a list of userid -> group mappings?

The essential idea is to have people login by going to a designated
page (I'll use "Site.Login" for this example), and have a per-page
configuration file for that page hand authentication and redirection.
For example, create local/Site.Login.php that contains the 

     ##   force ?action=login if not logged in
     if (!@$AuthId) $action='login';

     ##   determine where each userid should jump
     $JumpTo = array(
       'alice' => 'GroupA.HomePage',
       'bob' => 'GroupA.HomePage',
       'carol' => 'GroupB.HomePage',
       'dave' => 'GroupA.HomePage',
       'emily' => 'GroupB.HomePage');

     ##   perform jump
     if (@$JumpTo[$AuthId]) Redirect($JumpTo[$AuthId]);
