Positioning object in a loclocked group

I find positioning objects by script inside a location locked groups to
be very non-intuitive as well.
I wish there was a mode by which all object in a group - in the special
mode - could be set and referenced by coordinates relative to the group.
set the relative loc of btn X in group Y to 120,120 -- places the center
of the button 120px right and down from the left, top of the group
(where ever that is)
