As I understand it, anyone with the 'admin' privilege for a group can
remove any member or privilege within that groups. Is there any way of
creating a 'superadmin' who cannot be removed by people with the 'admin'

A usecase might be a research group in which the leader of the group
would be the 'superadmin'. He/She then delegates the actual work of
maintaining the group to two people who both have the 'admin' privilege.
The admins do all the work, stand in for each other, and get replaced
every so often. The superadmin only really needs to step in when both
admins leave at the same time.

The group leader could just be an admin and delegate via the update
privilege, but then still has to manage the updaters, which he or she
might prefer also to delegate.
