Quick add (and maybe delete) people from named groups

Wish Wish Wish ideas
1.) Make it quicker to add (and, perhaps, delete) a person to a named group.
a) Drag people from the Navagation View to the group displayed in the sidebar when a group is displayed in the sidebar (it would also be nice if people could also be deleted directly from the group sidebar.) Maybe have on the group sidebar the +, -, and Go buttons found on the bookmarks sidebar.
Add an item: “Groups>” to the pop-up shortcut menu for the people in the navigation views. The expanded menu could show the list of user-defined groups, and clicking on the group would add the person to the group. It would be even niftier if the expanded menu would indicate with a + or - whether the person could be added to or deleted from the group.
c) Hot-key to pull up a window with a list of named groups and allow the highlighted person to be added to the group. Again, it would be even niftier if the list indicated whether a person could be either added to or deleted from a group.

Way back in RM4 development Named Groups were to be Dynamic, unfortunately the Rootsmagician had to "temporarily" remove that functionality before release, I would just hope he still has it in his bottom drawer somewhere.
