That's an issue for socnet. There is no core code to create a user-owned group.

I left that function out on purpose. socnet might have other features 
attached to a group that are very user specific. Likewise, if a group 
is private, even an Admin should not be able to change who owns that 
private group because it violates the privacy of the original creator.
