MotorGroup overview

Whenever a move with more than one motor (or moveable element in general) is requested, a MotorGroup object containing all elements involved in the movement is silently created.

The motor group will not be removed automatically after the operation finishes. This allows reuse of the groups by subsequent operation involving the same set of moveables. You can however freely remove them manually with no adverse effects.

The motor group object is also exposed as a Tango device, by default using the mg/<pool name>/_mg_ms_<pid>_<num> where pool name is the alias or instance name of the Pool hosting the MotorGroup, pid is a PID of the MacroServer that created the MotorGroup, and num is just a sequential counter.
