As yet there's not a conditional to check if a group exists.  Of
course, the only way to know if a group exists is to see if there's
a page in that group.

I've been thinking of extending the 'exists' conditional to
accept wildcards, so then one could see if a group exists by doing

    (:if exists Group.*:)

But there hasn't been much demand for it, so PmWikiPhilosophy #3 applies.

Nope, that doesn't exist yet.  I was thinking about adding variables
for page attributes, but I got sidetracked (and I'm still not sure
how I want these to look).
