Sorry to be a newbie, but just trying to understand the language and concepts here...

The problem, as I mentioned in another message, is that the subject API
provides only loose coupling with your IdMS data.
I assume idms is identity management system. lets give an example. at penn we have a penn_id, which is an 8 digit number assigned to each person.
So if we had a query that returned penn_id's for users who should be in a group, you are saying the problem is that there is a loose
coupling between the penn_id and the subject api id? So grouper would need to somehow lookup the subject api id? And if the query
just returned a list of subject api id's that would be nice for grouper but might be inconvenient for users?
