This is not quite correct - groups are controls. (Expressions like
"the name of control 3" treat groups as controls, for example.) But
they don't receive mouse messages directly.
I think this makes some conceptual sense - although it's confusing -
because groups aren't user-interface objects in and of themselves. As
containers for other objects, they're more abstract.
