I think the issue David is trying to address is that no deleteGroup is
sent to children groups if the parent is deleted (which should
probably be considered a bug anyway). Assume you have this group
If you delete Group B then Group B receives the deleteGroup message as
does Group A (unless Group B traps the message).
If you delete Group A then Group B and Group C DO NOT receive the
deleteGroup message. Only Group A does.
Currently a developer needs to to manually go through a group's
children and dispatch the deleteGroup message to it's children if it
was the target of the deleteGroup message.
