No.

With Apache 2.2 or lower, the best you can do is use
mod_rewrite to map from / or /group/ or (your choice)
to an appropriate directory based on REMOTE_USER
with a "Require valid-user".

In future versions, we hope to offer better options.

You can also use mod_macro to take the pain out of that.
