	I agree with Stephen. I was only trying to address the method by which 
only a group of Requestors could see their tickets only in a queue. Yes, 
you would have to write some scrips to add group members to the 
Requestor role of the ticket AND, as Stephen mentioned, you would have 
an awful lot of emial churned out, unless you also turned of the 
Standard RT notifications and created your own. I believe it CAN be 
done, but it WILL be a lot of work.
