We have a system that has several optimizations, but each optimization trades by it's own magic number. So basically, it's all the same system, but there are 10 different magic numbers. (There's actually several strategies, each with multiple optimizations. So it's hard to see how profitable each trading strategy is)
Would it be possible to create a 'Magic Group', and define which magic numbers are in that group, and then be able to see performance for that group?

No. I think he means combining several magics into one (group)...
I presume this was exactly what was intended in the first post and that's how I meant it too. So instead of several magic numbers you have them all in one group and this group acts like one magic number. And you could make many groups.
That would be neat for portfolio trading and/or for a system that uses many magic numbers.
You could for example, if you have several different scalpers, group them all together to form a 'Scalpers' group(they could also be seen separately at the same time).
You could have an EA that uses several magic numbers and group them all together(especially useful in portfolio trading if you have several such EAs). This way you could easily see the overall behavior/effectiveness/etc. of each EA.
Just had to check, this was actually part of my original suggestion to implement analysis of magicnumbers way back in August 2009. I also suggested, then, that there should be way to see performance per magicnumber that haven't been properly implemented yet. You still have to select every magicnumber one after one and write down their gained pips and so on in a excel sheet to do proper comparisons.
