I use groups primarily for interface purposes - i.e. an actual group of
onscreen controls. I turn on the border and the showName and set the
name properly, set the margin and I'm done. But I tend to leave
selectGroupedControls off until I need to access what's inside the
Most of the time I don't use grouped controls for "background" behavior
or for script insertion (I use backscripts and libraries for that).
