We want to allow only certain users/groups create a subtask

We'd like restricting  the creation of subtasks to specified groups, only users of a certain group are allowed of creating subtasks. These groups are different from which are allowed of creating tasks.

Agree with Joe. I have the same problem and i can't find a plugin to fix it.
