OK sounds good.

I don't know, lately Ive taken the cascade delete approach... since it is
hard to know what to do if you want to change a role to a group, it fails
with an exception that says some permission is assigned somewhere, but its
difficult or tedious to figure out how to delete it. So I would say just
delete cascade everything. Same as if you delete a group, right?

Cool. Yes, I'll take care of it for 1.6.
How about in the opposite direction (role -> group)? Should we allow
that or not and if we allow it, should we fail under some circumstances
like if the role has a permission or if the role is part of another role

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? :)

Subject: [grouper-dev] converting group to role?
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.
