Thanks for the help, I actually figured it out.  It turned out that
portal.portal_groups.getGroupById("staff").getGroupUsers() was the

Where "staff" is the name of the group. This almost does what I need, but not quite close enough because it lists all groups and all users.

Any suggestions or help is greatly appreciated!

It acquires 'getUsers' from somewhere, I guess.

Group objects have 'getGroupMemberIds' and 'getGroupMembers' methods.
You can see this in Products.GroupUserFolder.GroupDataTool.GroupData.
the Products.GroupUserFolder.interfaces.portal_groupdata is a bit
cleaner, but seems a little behind the times, as it's missing
