Well, that fixes one problem but creates another.  I created a simple test
plug-in to run the following code in a function applied by the posts_where

if ( !is_admin() ) $where = eregi_replace ("post_type = 'page'", "(
post_type = 'page' OR post_type = 'group' )", $where);

This does make it so that WP will display.  However, I think basically it
eliminates distinctions.  Under both 'Manage Pages' and 'Manage Posts' all
records of the posts table are returned.  Any idea why that would happen?
