no possibility due to the internal datastructure: fe_groups are inserted 
as comma separated list in fe_users

but you might get some comfort if you use the possibility to use subgroups.
if all your users have a primary group A,B,...,F
and you want all members of Groups B,D and E also to be in Group X you 
can insert X as subgroup into groups B,D and E without to include group 
X into every user.

the other simplification: use the possibility to edit one field for 
multiple records at once in list view:
expand table (little [+]-sign beside table name) to get the possibility 
to view further fields of records, select desired field(s) below list 
and push button [set fields], now you have an edit-pencil at each 
column-heading where you can edit this field for all records in one form.
If you enable the clipboard and select a multiple-record-clipboard you 
might select only a subset of records for editing the same field for all 
these selected records.
!!!be aware of fields which consume a lot of resources like RTE-fields: 
building 100 RTEs will be too much for your computer!!!
