Disagreeing is cool. However, I fail to see what "shadow group
functionality" is, if 'shadow' is not being used in a proper noun
situation. Isn't it the package Shadow's group functionality?

To me, the way you have it written is that it is
Shadow's group functionality. However, leaving out the possessive
could be optional, I suppose.
