Can we do one of two things:

1. Change the grouper_attributes.value so that it is not in the
unique index with group_id and name? With all three it allows a group to
have two attributes with the same name, do we have a use case for that?
We don't currently, but we might if we had multivalued-attributes at some point in the future. However, even if we allowed multivalued-attributes who are we to say the same value couldn't appear twice? For now we can leave the value out of the index

2. --or- Make the size of that column 766. If someone wanted to
increase it, that is probably easier than having the schemaExport fail
for mysql users and having to wonder what to do
One solution would be to have the column length substituted at build time (Ant filtering) based on configuration.
