 Group types are hardcoded in the create and edit templates. We do offer a
 little bit of an API with the 'groups_allowed_status' filter, but this is
 clearly incomplete. I would not be opposed to some sort of more robust
 API, but we'll need a patch. I'm happy to put it in an upcoming milestone
 if you'd like to take charge and create an initial patch.

 I'm not sold on having a stock UI for this. It doesn't seem like it meets
 the "80% rule". API and abstraction, yes; UI, I'd rather leave to plugins
 for something like this.

 >  Plus I'd like to see some logic to handle user caps for creating groups
 under certain visibility. Also have an option for a friends only group
 visibility option.

 Words like "plus" and "also" are good indicators that you should be
 opening new tickets - these are radically different requests :) We have a
 'bp_user_can_create_groups' filter that could be used to do most of your
 first request (the visibility bit would be tough without the previously
 mentioned API). "Friends-only" group visibility would be plugin territory,
 once this is all abstracted. (Would need a lot of thought put into it,
 too. *Whose* friends? The admin's? Any group member's?)
