Awww, it's easy. Try formatting your sidebar this way:
* %hl-Main% [[Main.WikiSandbox]]
* %hl-Main% [[Main.HomePage]]
* %hl-OtherGroup% [[OtherGroup.SomeWhere]]
* %hl-OtherGroup% [[OtherGroup.SomeWhereElse]]
* %hl-PmWiki% [[PmWiki.DocumentationIndex]]
* %hl-PmWiki% [[PmWiki.BasicEditing]]
When you're in the Main group, the Main.* entries will be highlighted,
when in the PmWiki group, the PmWiki.* entries will be highlighted, etc.
Of course, you can also do things like:
and it will just highlight the appropriate section.
There are, of course, *lots* of other ways to do this, but this
is the one that popped up in my head first.

In skins.php you have to declare any global variables, thus it
$GroupHeaderFmt = '';
$GLOBALS['GroupHeaderFmt'] = '';
