AddUsergroup - Create a new usergroup

    The AddUsergroup LUMP API script to create a new usergroup.

    *username* - Name of user running this CGI script. Required unless web
    server authentication is in use (when it is, the web server
    authenticated user is used instead).
    *password* - Password for the user. This is only required if the web
    server is not handling the user authentication and if no security hash
    parameter is being given.
    *security_hash* - An opaque value used to authenticate the user without
    requiring the password to be sent. This value is generated by a previous
    execution of a LUMP API script and may well be time limited. It is only
    required if no password or webserver authentication is done.
    *act_as* - Users in the SysAdmins group can elect to act on the behalf
    of other users once they are themselves authenticated. If this parameter
    is present it should contain the username of the user that should be
    switched to if this option is available and the real user has been
    authenticated successfully. Optional.
    *session_id* - An opaque string as far as the server is concerned that
    is intended solely to allow async clients to differentiate different
    results more easily. Optional.

  Specific for this script
    *group_name* - Name of the usergroup. Must be given.
    *priority_id* - ID of a priority to attach to this group.
    *unique_name* - If set to 'Y' no existing groups must exist with the
    given name. If they do, return a list of the usergroup ID(s) instead of
    creating a new group.

    The script returns an XML document in the standard LUMP response format
    (as documented in LUMP-XML-Response). In this response we return the ID
    of the usergroup(s) when the call has succeeded.
