400: Fix group membership/watched group UI split

It would be a nice to be able to optionally show watched groups inline on
the initial My Dashboard page; a per-group setting would be great. This
would allow all new reviews for a given group to show up as soon as My
Dashboard is clicked. 

For those who are responsible for a particular Group and therefore have to
at least be aware of each patch as it arrives, this would save a good
number of clicks per day.

This is what the group subscription is for in "My Account"

I'll leave this open, because it might be nice to rethink the UI to combine watched
groups with group membership.

A-ha! That is exactly what I was looking for. Hum .. yes, I had expected it to be
available from either the Group listing (or, barring that, off of the Group page
itself, though I don't figure that page would benefit from more clutter). Seems to me
that would be the "natural" place to find.

Also, yes, it is a bit interesting that to watch a group one also therefore belongs
to it.

Anyways, thanks for the quick response. Enjoying r-b thus far (been using it for ~3
weeks in our project).

Joining a group and watching a group are a little different, though it's non-obvious.
If you join a group, all review requests to the group will appear in your Incoming
Reviews list. If you just watch a group, it doesn't, but instead appears in the
various groups.

This is useful if you're interested in paying attention on occasion to review
requests in a particular group, but you don't want them all to clutter your dashboard.
