 I agree that mixed access settings based on group status is not the norm,
 and also agree that a completely flexible approach (overriding
 `user_can_visit()` and `user_can_see_nav_item()`) will handle those cases.
 I think most plugins won't need to specify anything and can rely on your
 defaults (public groups => anyone, private and hidden => members). We can
 add an example to the Group Extension API page with an example switch
 based on group status and user membership role to show a more complicated

 Yes, I looked at the example extensions and like the directness of the new
 arguments. I mean, it loses some of the mystery and wonder for the
 developer, but I think everyone'll adjust. :)

 I'll test this patch asap. Thanks again.
