PowerShell: AD Pull DirectoryEntry for AD Group by Object Guid

There have been times in my AD scripting career that I've to deal with other AD admins moving AD groups and thus changing the distinguished name value that I had hard coded in a script. Well recently, I figured out how to pull an AD group via the object Guid for the AD group. So now when someone gets bit by the renaming or rearranging bug, I won't have to update my scripts. 

I posted the PowerShell script code in my PowerShellSumo repo.
