It's actually behind a setting currently, the right item remains
highlited be default. If the group_info container isn't present then it
looks and behaves just like it used to.

*sigh* and the message "There are 23 recordings in this group." is
helpful. It provides information on what you're currently sorting
through which is the groups.

Right now the list highlight is hidden behind a setting which defaults
to the old behavior... Though I did miss the part about the group info
being configurable. I did make it dependent on the theme supporting it,
and I was asked to add it back into GANT if the rest of the things were
staying. I'll put the setting in sometime tomorrow.

That's actually a great idea. I'll bundle that in.
