When creating a rule file, I'm setting the priority for a group like so:

  <rule ref="rulesets/java/design.xml">
    <priority>2</priority>
  </rule>

however, that does not work. It only works if I specify exact rules like this:

  <rule ref="rulesets/java/codesize.xml/NcssTypeCount">
    <priority>5</priority>
  </rule>

It would be nice if the rule priority could be overridden in a simple manner like the first option
