Hm. I'm starting to dislike the dynamic registration the more I think
about it. Now when a group is unregistered I'd have to unbind everybody
who's currently using it... At least when I want to enforce
root/non-root binds which is a further goal.

Also, it doesn't look like I'll ever be searching for a group unless we
want to allow userspace to explicitly ask for a group ID, but I'd think
it should just get the list of all IDs when asking for family
information and then cache that.
