Refer to new group?

I vaguely recall some new language element recently added to allow us to 
more reliably refer to newly-created groups.

Apparently the "group" command is an exception to the general rule that 
"it" will contain the long ID of a newly-created object after a command 
that creates it.

And using "last" is not always reliable with groups.

After reviewing Release Notes from 8.1 back to 6.7 I can't find mention 
of such an option.

Am I dreaming?

I was prompted to explore this from this forum thread:
