More than one group on a sub

Would it be possible to have more than one group controlled by one sub fader?
I am thinking if I wanted my tab warmers and a FOH inhibit on a sub to cover a show stop. Or maybe also add in a third group that put the overhead units into home position and open white to give work light on stage for the show stop. I would normally have these as three faders on a separate sub page. But it would be nice to also be able to put them on one emergency sub on the top page without taking up too much space.
There would need to be some indication on the group list that the sub chosen was controlling more than one group - maybe turn the background colour of the submaster number yellow or red or something. And when you assign it, the pop up metro box that currently appears asking to cancel or replace would need a third option - to control both.

Yes, you can do that. There is an option in the System Properties -> show Defaults -> Advanced -> Allow shared submasters. If you turn this on then you can use the same submaster for multiple items. Its turned off by default to keep it simple.
