Is that something that could make the list for the next version?

Has anyone implemented a Groups Module that implements content authorisation?

If so, was there any modules in the gallery that you used?

And how is that different from roles?

Hi Bertrand,
I am working on a Calendar and want to allow access to the Calendar for people in a specified group. Each Calendar is a Content Item that I would like to restrict access to.
I want to allow users to create Groups like a Linked In Group. Could I use Roles to do that?
Is it a no no to let users create Roles?
I am happy to do this with Roles if that is cool, I just wanted to make sure it was cool I suppose.

That sounds very specific. I'm not sure I would use roles for that, no, because letting users create roles would open the system pretty widely. I would probably do something ad hoc instead.
