Does anybody know if it is possible to add a custom group to Finder's sidebar in Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion)?

Currently you have Favorites, Shared and Devices. I'd like to add something like Clients or Projects.

You can't even rearrange the groups, so I don't think it's happening. – Vervious Jun 9 '12 at 0:54
As a workaround, I use Sidebar Separators (no longer available for download AFAICT), applications that do nothing when started and have ———————— as name. Not particularly nice to look at, but it makes separating favorites easier. Respond if you're interested. – Daniel Beck Jul 15 '12 at 18:53

I wrote small app for myself, you may create different fav sets with it and switch between them. I have about 5 projects myself, so it helps me well. I did not public it, you may try it by this link.
