Comment (by boonebgorges):

 I haven't been involved in much of the above, so I'll refrain from making
 comments on the technical implementation, other than to say that it makes
 sense to me and looks clean, at a glance anyway.

 On the hierarchy itself:
 - You put groups/single/index-action-{action}.php ahead of groups/single
 /index-slug-{slug}.php. I can see why that might make sense (a single
 group can have many actions), but it seems unconventional to put the
 group-specific template anywhere but at the top of the hierarchy.
 - I personally like the idea of having ID/login/nicename-specific items in
 the hierarchy, both because it more closely parallels the way that the WP
 hierarchy works, and because I can imagine possible use cases where
 certain groups/profiles might require totally different markup from
 everyone else's. If it doesn't add too much overhead (of either the
 technical or cognitive variety), I'd say support should be added for them.

 Thanks for plugging away at this one, r-a-y.
