> The thinking is that we should support visibility labels to be associated with user groups.
> We will then be able grant visibility labels to a group in addition to individual users,
which provides convenience and usability.
> We will use '@group' to denote a group name, as similarly done in AcccessController.
> For example, 
> {code}
> set_auths '@group1', ['SECRET','PRIVATE']
> {code}
> {code}
> get_auth '@group1'
> {code}
> A user belonging to 'group1' will have all the visibility labels granted to 'group1'
> We'll also support super user groups as specified in hbase-site.xml.
> The code update will mainly be on the server side VisibilityLabelService implementation.
