No, the basic file authentication (user-mapping.xml) extension does not
support any organization to the connections.  The JDBC module is actually
the only module that does - all of the other modules that support
connections (LDAP, upcoming QuickConnect, and Basic File Authentication)
simply put the connections in a single, flat root group with no ability to
organize them.  If you need this functionality, you need to use the JDBC
module - it's worth the very slight overhead and additional 10 minutes of
work to get it set up.
