This hook is in ALPHA stage.

What this means is that it has not been extensively tested, the code needs to be tweaked some and that it's basically still hot off the grill.

What this will do is make it so that icons for selected secondary groups will show up for members who have those groups applied to their account. This is only noticeable when viewing a topic.

Options include:
- enabled or not
- which groups to include (public view and private view)
- guest access
- restriction by group
- always on for Admins/Supermods (private view)

No screenshot of it in action yet, but here's what it does. Let's say you have a group named 'Contributors' that is automatically applied to someones secondary group list when they donate money to you and let's say that the group has an image associated with it (member group setting). If you select to have that group shown, then everyone who has it as a secondary group will have the contributors image show up in their info pane in the topic view.

There are two selections, public and private. Public shows to anyone who isn't restricted from seeing the secondary icons. Private requires being a member of one of another choice of groups. You can have Supermods and Admins pre-included to view this list. The private view is good if you want to see who has access to a particular group, but don't want that made known to the general public. Using the contributors example, you might a persons status to remain confidential but like seeing it for yourself.

Even though this hook is in ALPHA status, it does not make use of any database calls. The worst that could happen is it messes up the display. Think of it as being a BETA that hasn't been home tested yet.
