Following up : we just concluded our conference call, and one of the points raised regarding attaching to the ShibbolethAttributeResolver is that some institutions might want to use the Grouper API as a data connector, while others might want to use Grouper WebServices, and I guess others might want to attach via JDBC. Perhaps something to keep in mind.

added to act as an attribute provider. If I can find time I'll try to
get something up somewhere next week...
