Moodle 2.0 Cohorts (or “Site wide groups”)

I took my first look at Cohorts this evening. Well -actually –  you’ve been able to create cohorts for some time in Moodle 2.0 but you couldn’t do anything with them once you had. Now you can go to a course and add a cohort – go to another course and add it again. I did the briefest of explorations (three minutes) in a screencast below.

I thought I’d be able to add my cohort as  a ready made group to my groups in a course but instead they appeared as individuals. Is that coming or will the cohort disband once it’s in the course? Whatever the answers to those, here is what I’ve discovered so far:
