What you can't do with the current implementation of groups is put your 
mouse over the scrolling group and draw a circle.  You can have a 
button (as in a toolbar) past a circle in the group and have the user 
then move and size it.  But they can not drag a circle interactively in 
a group from scratch.

This applies to every other object as well.
