I haven't looked at the ProjectGroup creation screen yet, but yes it 
would be nice to have a way to be able to specify a ProjectGroup name.

On a related note, I think we should have these ideas (grouped flag, 
group label) logged somewhere so we can bring them back when the POM is 
open for review again.

I think this would be nice. Is it feasible to have this friendly URL 
notion extended for viewing Project details, say


or something like that? Where the Project Name can be sourced from pom's
