Wilhelm:

Workarounds. That is one of the endearing things about Rev.

I still like the templateGroup method, where, for example, you could set 
the name of each new group to some text (like "groupNumber") appended with the 
number of groups plus 1. So the last group of 15 would be:

group "groupNumber15"

This ties up the name of the templateGroup, of course.

Ken Ray suggested trapping the "newGroup" message. I suppose you could use 
this to set a property or the group name, similar to the templateGroup 
scenario.

Any of these can get you any group you need, just querying them all.
