Is there any chance of MUSHClient supporting creating subgroups?
Currently, you can name a group for a trigger / alias / etc, and it'll put them all into a nice collapsible view, plus allow you to operate on those related triggers. It's only one level, however, which means you can't organize triggers into nested forms -- you're stuck with either a group with a lot of triggers, or a lot of groups in the tree view. I'd like to expand on this ability by being able to create child branches, so that there can be nestled child groups within parent groups.
A group name might look like Magic/White/Healing, for example. In the tree view, you'd have a top-level group called magic, then under that a subgroup called White for white magic that you could open, which would have under it the healing group.
I've seen older mud clients with this behaviour, so I'm hoping it won't be too difficult to add to MC. Monkey Term, for example, supports this kind of nested behaviour, and I loved it for grouping together triggers and aliases! It was so organized and beautiful.
I imagine the group operations would need to be tweaked to support this new activity, perhaps to where if you specify just a group name, it'd only work on that group's triggers, but if you specified groupname*, it'd work on that group's triggers, plus any children.
