No, it isn't, and that is why such a function for permutation groups
is not in the manual. The record component you mention is there for
I am running GAP 3.4 at patch level 3, and I think I have applied all
bugfixes, in particular bugfix04. Perhaps I should try the newly=20
Indeed you should, although the function is new, we hope it is
correct, at least it produces a correct answer in your example.
In a later version we hope to have an FpGroup function that embraces
more kinds of groups.
