Say, that looks pretty handy. 

But does it do anything more than make the Group buffer pretty?  I
mean, a pretty Group buffer is good, but it's tab completion that is
most annoying for me.  When I copy articles, I'd like to user shorter
and simpler names.  That would be swell.

I bet that's not too hard to fix, given your functions, right?
