I ain't no guru, but I would say:
1) I'd've thought that'd be simple enough to implement, and it is nice
and would be very handy
2) It's not as good or as flexible as what I suggested - it'd be nice to
have both, but group from user is much more likely to be forthcoming, I
3) You're right about groups, and I don't think enough people use them
enough or appropriately.
