Ok - I've actually had a bit of a change of mind here, and am backing
down from my "single function modular algorithm" stance.

I'll keep the grouping option but will refine it's behavior. I propose:

1. Allowing multiple field selection for grouping
2. Keeping attributes of first feature when grouping
3. Dropping the "mode" selection combo - if fields are selected, the
grouping occurs. If not, no grouping - per feature hull is made.

I'll leave the possible inclusion of a "whole layer" hull as a
separate future enhancement.
