Yes, we should do this. Sorry about that. So we changed the API earlier so
that setters don't do anything, but when you call "store()", or "save()" or
something, that is what sends the sql. So can that method check to see if
the object has changed and add the rolesets? Do you want to do this or do
you want me to? :)

I'm wondering if it should be possible to convert a group to a role. If
you set Group.setTypeOfGroup(TypeOfGroup.role), that doesn't add the
role sets. Should that add the role set(s), or should there be another
way to convert a group to a role, or is there actually another way, or
should it not be possible..?

I basically mistakenly added a group instead of a role and then added
memberships and access privileges and finally when I was about to add
permissions, I realized my mistake.
