 Having various group types is currently possible. Having a unique URL for
 these group types is not, however.

 I am currently writing a plugin that needs this, though. So for normal
 user groups I'd normally have an URL like so:

 For various group types I would then need an URL like this:

 To make this happen I've had to add various filters and change the
 bp_group_admin_tabs() function to use bp_get_group_permalink(), so the
 link can be filtered.

 It also became necessary to filter out some group types from the normal
 groups directory. I've noticed an inconsistency when filtering
 'bp_groups_get_total_groups_sql' (line 387 in bp-groups-classes.php in
 trunk). $t_sql is already cast as a string, but is then being cast as an
 array again and then joined to create a string, which is unnecessary. Then
 $t_sql is also passed as the second argument to the filter, which doesn't
 make much sense. It would be better if $total_sql is passed instead.

 The group count for users then obviously needs adjusting as well, which is
 currently not possible with 'bp_get_total_group_count_for_user' (line 1666
 in bp-groups-template.php). $user_id should really be passed as a second
 argument to the filter to make this possible.

 Please see the attached patch files.

 There might be other instances where a filter is needed. I'll add these
 filters to the ticket if I come across it during development.
