I'm thinking about a problem set which looks similar -- potentially
large numbers of "groups", or perhaps "groupings" is a better word.
Thinking about the issue, it sounds a bit like taxonomy, and from
there, a style of taxonomy access. Yes, users aren't nodes...but
there have been many demands for a way to make it so, and some sort
of relation fits in here too.
Please report back approaches you are considering/taking.
