DefaultPermissionGroupProvider not doing its whole job

DefaultPermissionGroupProvider doesn't really return the permission groups of which a user is a member; it only handles the "anonymous" and "authenticated" groups. All of the threading through user-defined groups is actually done by DefaultPermissionStore. While I'm sure that's efficient, it's a problem when the permission_store is replaced, as with TracForge, if it expects to be able to extend the existing permission group system. See TracForgeGroupsModule for an example. This problem exists in 0.10-stable and 0.11 AFAICT.
Of course, it's entirely possible that I've completely misinterpreted the meaning of "group" and the intention behind DefaultPermissionStore here :).
