Grouping controls within a group

I have a need to group controls within an existing group into a subgroup by
script, but I get a runtime error when trying to do that - in 6.5.2 the
message is "Object cannot be grouped".

Any ideas on how to do that?  The only way I can think of is to ungroup the
main group, group the selected controls to form the subgroup, then group
the subgroup and the rest of the controls to reinstate the main group, but
that's pretty scary!
