CC Server Side Group Substitution for VOBs create, manage, report on VOB groups as on VOB server

Need the ability to create, manage and report on group information for VOBs with more than 16 groups. Any VOB related operations (mkvob, lsvob, etc.) should handle ngroups_max as set on the VOB server.

With large number of groups, and churn on new groups, deleted groups, and membership of groups it is important to know what groups are usable, or not usable for VOBs.

The client system using the VOB may not have the same groups at the same time. What's needed is info on the group substitution as done on the server side.
