No, "profile groups" are a different concept; from reading the code in ProfileGroup.cpp it's like a
group of profiles having one parent profile, and when you change the settings it can be applied to
all the child profiles, or to specific ones... I am not 100% sure, since I've never seen that
concept in action.
