Despite the documentation that says that we can use $ in "group
names" the web gui does not allow it, pls see attached.
Is there some option to enable this?

I checked the code and '$' can be used only as the last character in
group name, so error message is not quite exact

PATTERN_GROUPUSER_NAME = '^[a-zA-Z0-9_.][a-zA-Z0-9_.-]*[a-zA-Z0-9_.$-]?$'
Since this is a pattern to be matched, the $ actually means something
(it is an end of string anchor) and is not a literal '$' character.
The third set of allowed characters at the end includes $. The set
[a-zA-Z0-9_.$-]? has '?' qualifier which means it is optional. But end
result is to allow '$' as the last character of a group or user name.

However, '$' is not allowed anywhere else. This makes possible to have
machine or trusted domain accounts for Active Directory/Samba purposes
but nothing else with '$' sign in the name.
