This looks very nice :)

I do have one concern.
If the auto-generated group files keep the same path as the existing
source controlled group files, checkout of pre/post this change is
going to be challenging for developers running make in the source
directory.

Also .gitignore entries are needed for the auto-generated group files.

I wonder if it wouldn't be easier for everyone if the auto-generated
groups had a different name.

Thanks,
Amir.
