This patch begins the process of creating a convenient place to locate examples of groups, much as is the case for graphs, digraphs and posets.

It creates an object and populates it with methods that return groups. For general families, it just employs the class where the group is implemented, such as for the Mathieu groups. For more specific (simple) examples, the group may be implemented in the method, such as for the quaternion group expressed as a matrix group.

Naming decisions were made to maximize the effectiveness of tab-completion. Once the infrastructure is in place I will work to add every possible example implemented in Sage.
