I don't use roaming profiles myself, but if you have a "Default User" 
directory somewhere that is used as a template when creating a users 
profile, couldn't you use standard substitutions?

path = /shared/%G/netlogon

then create

each directory can contain its own "Default User" directory. Anything 
that is common between groups could be a symlink back to 

There might be a still better way, but I think it will involve %G 
somewhere :)
