  Description     : Simple implementation of nested groups

 Set::NestedGroups gives an implementation of nested groups,
 access control lists (ACLs) would be one example of
 nested groups.

 For example, if Joe is a Manager, and Managers have access to payroll,
 you can create an ACL which implements these rules, then ask the ACL
 if Joe has access to payroll.

 Another example, you may wish to track which city, state and country
 people are in, by adding people to cities, cities to states, and states
 to countries.

 This module includes some facilities to integrate its data structures
 with either files in the local filesystem and with tables in a RDBMS.
