Thanks but it could be called from anywhere - from a handler in a  
library for instance - actually the problem I am trying to solve is  
to avoid recursion in geometry management - a group sets a custom  
property "group_Rect" of any groups within itself. That way you can  
replace groups with other groups and the geometry keeps working - but  
if you forget to define a setprop handler for a group you get  
unpleasant recursion - which at the moment I have to check by  
checking the script of the group first.
