Can you grant rights on your group, eg allow all users in one of your
groups to modify another group?

For example, if the sysadmin creates a "club" user, with a "club" group,
will it be possible to permit members of that group to decide to
add/remove someone from the group, so that a students' club can manage
itself without refering to the sysadmin again after the creation?
