Good to hear.  And, hopefully, that will be made even easier in an

Are you using these yet or are these just in anticipation of some of
the capabilities slotted for a future Grouper release?
I wasn't assuming anything here about future Groupers.  Our PASE spec has the idea that each service has an explicit "include" and "exclude" list,  I know all this could be done with plain "base" type groups and some naming conventions, but I thought I'd give this approach a try.  None of this is more than a prototyping exercise for now at least.
Basically I added a command line option "-t <gtype>" to allow one to 
specify the group type to be acted upon

Ah, you beat me to it.
Just seemed the simplest thing to do  ;-)

Sure, of course.     --Keith
