On friends groups, userpics, and uniqueness.

So I'm sitting here deciding how I want to implement friends groups and userpics...and I see that I wrote down a question yesterday in my notebook.

Are the names of friends groups unique? I know they're identified by an ID number, but can they also be reliably identified by their name?

I'm fairly certain userpic names are unique, since that's the only way one refers to them, but I'd also want to make doubly sure of that.

Also...if a userpic name that doesn't exist on the server is sent, does it use the default userpic?
