I missed the call but heard the recording and it seems the call finished
before getting a chance to address item (7) in the agenda. Are we
essentially ready to at least begin implementation on this with the
information available at
ion? Chris, is it correct for me to assume that you are or will be
working on allowing alias support?

Also, Gary mentioned in the previous call that only a sysadmin should be
able to copy/move groups and/or stems when large transformations are
involved? How would you define a large transformation? One that
involves X memberships or Y groups or Z stems or a combination?
My main concern was with moving/copying a stem with 'many' children so that the access/naming privilege checks don't impact performance unduly. I'm not sure where the limit ought to be but it could be configurable and profiling would help determine the limit. I'd try ~100 to start abs see how that goes.
