When writing "arbitrary" I did not mean to randomly scatter them over 
the window. There can be multiple columns of radio buttons with text 
between them or other arrangements. The same question could be asked 
about TRadioButtons in general: Why can i put them *anywhere* although 
they are correlated? No visible connection is needed in this case. But 
it's only one group. No way to divide them into multiple groups. I would 
have expected a simple group number property that lets me set the group 
of some radio buttons to 1 and others to 2.
