We don't use $Group.HomePage (except in Main). For some groups we  
have $Group.$Group, and for others $Group.Index.
Now it would be easy to add to the conditional, and of course this is  
particular to each installation.  And to make it even worse, we have
groups that have no "HomePage".   Fortunately for us, creating  
unwanted groups is not a serious problem.
