Brett Porter closed CONTINUUM-2515.

closing as a duplicate of the related issues - we do intend to provide a way to clean them
up in future, but for now this is by design.

> Create a Project group.
> Add projects to it.
> Delete the group.
> All the roles and permissions created for the projects and groups remain in the Database
and interface, with no way to delete them.
> Over time, when many groups are created and deleted for versioning, this create a lot
of orphans permissions and roles that slows down access.
> The only way to purge those orphan roles are to delete them directly in the database,
a task that is complicated by the various table relations.
> When deleting a group, the associated permissions and role should be automatically deleted
or at the very least, prompted for deletion.
