The difference is that lists are only there if you you define them for
type and assign the type to a group. Actions are always there and are
permission specific - but that just comes back to whether we should be
loading attributes in this way.

1. I think lists are global in Grouper. If you define a list, any group
can use it (right??) I didn't think you needed a type on the group
No, they are part of a type - list vs attribute i.e.

in QuickStart db:

select distinct type from grouper_fields ->

access (internal use - base type)
naming (internal - naming type)

2. Types are only for attribute fields (I thought)

3. You use lists even if you don't define them, the default list is the
"members" list. You don't care about this, you just know you don't want
multiple, that is how the attribute assignment will be. It will be
useful in privileges, and if someone wants to use it for plain old
attributes they will be able to. If you don't need it, pretend like it
isn't there, just like the "members" list
Well, a group wouldn't be a group without a list of members...
