a few questions for which I don't seem able to find docs :-)

It seems like it is possible to recompile 1.4.6 with an option to get 
the possibility to put groups in groups.
- Is this feature considered stable for production use?
- Will it allow for multiple levels of groups in groups?
- Is this a server-only feature or is the client affected as well (i.e. 
must the clients be recompiled?)

Also, for people to be able to see what's in the protection database, 
they must obviously be members
of the (undocumented?) ptsviewers group. Is it safe just to add all 
people to this group or are there other
implications of doing so?
