AuthGroupFile - support for nested groups?

view story

http://serverfault.com – I'm currently using groups managed in a simple text file to allow for read and write access to various ressources: res1-r: alice bob res1-w: zak This file is used with the AuthGroupFile directive. With the groups file growing steadily, I'd like to establish some kind of "subgrouping". Let's assume that alice and bob are members of a team and I'd like to grant read access to the entire team. In effect, I'd like to write something like: ateam: alice bob res1-r: @ateam Is this possible - either directly or through some workaround? (HowTos)
