Photoshop CS6 lets users apply Layer Styles to a Layer Group. It means that Photoshop is now aware of the non-transparent pixels of the group.

Therefore, it should now be possible to code the CTRL(PC)/CMD(Mac)+Clicking of the group thumbnail to create a selection based on the contents of the group.

Right now, we have to Shift+CTRL/CMD+Click every layer part of the group.
