It's pretty common to put some sort of group access identifier in a document as a multivalued
field at index time, and then just filter your search query on those groups.  Obviously this
doesn't handle all the cases of a group's access to documents changing etc, but is a simple
workable solution.  Probably a better topic for the user mailing list!
