[TYPO3-english] Accessrights for pages / Many FE Groups

Hi there,

i have several problems with a large amount of FE_Groups. As already
asked in many Newsgroups at a clean installation of TYPO3 the number of
Groups which can be assigned to a Page, or the number of subgroups is
limited to 20.

This can be reassigned by: pages.columns.fe_group.config.maxitems in the

BUT: This seems to be only a workaround because the fe_group IDs are
stored in the pages table in the field fe_group, which is a VARCHAR(100)
field. So if you have entered so many groups that
"the sum of all digits of the group-ids is greater than 100"
chars another error message appears and no changes are saved.

Now there is the possibility to use subgroups and
subgroups-of-subgroups. But this should be no answer. It seems not very
clever to store such IDs in this way in the Database. Wouldn't it be
better to store such information in a mm-relation.

So now my questions:

Do you think this could be a bug?

Is there any solution to store more groups?
