I believe if the config file specifies to use the wheel group, and a logged
in user is in the wheel group, then a drop down appears in the upper right
(see attached screenshot). You can select act as admin, then "Change", and
you can then create groups/stems etc. To bootstrap, GSH can be used to add a
user to the wheel group specified in the config file.
