<CCing grouper-users, where this question best belongs.>
Ldappc provisions permissions for all subject types using the same LDAP
schema, so to use the stored-as=string method you'll need to endow your
LDAP group entries with an appropriate objectclass (like eduPerson). If
I recall correctly, if you declare a 'string-object-class' value, then
ldappc will attempt to add that value to the entry's 'objectclass'
attribute if it is missing. If so, then you can use an auxiliary
objectclass containing a permissions-listing attribute (like eduPerson
containing eduPersonEntitlement) so that subjects' LDAP entries need
have no prior permissions-related objectclass.
