It's not what I intended for fields, but with a couple of other
changes coming up, I'm wondering if it might be not too difficult
to add, or at least make easy to support in the core.  I'll keep it
in mind; I can see how it would be useful.

In some ways I'm starting to see a four-level structure...


where the "Group.Name" can be generalized to more levels if we ever
come up with a hierarchical groups approach.

But again, it's still very conjectural at this point.
