 the main groups directory--like BPGH with subgroup expands, simply
 including breadcrumbs with each result, or something else? The AJAX expand
 that BPGH uses seems to cause issues for users who expect to scan the list
 and find the group they're looking for, and never find second or deeper
 level groups because they don't show up. Maybe show them more like
 threaded comments with the option of closing groups of groups (could be a
 pretty expensive page load, and pagination would be odd)?

 I'm personally a fan of simplification, but I think that presenting the
 groups as a nested text list would be a pretty extreme departure from what
 we're currently doing... Happily, if we can make @hnla's snippets library
 idea work, it would be a simple matter for a variety of styles for that
 directory to be easy to achieve. Thanks for your feedback!
