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.
