Just tried to do that now but unfortunately I can't get it to compile,
the MySQLDialect in hibernate3 imports different packages (even
accounting for the net.sf >> org.hibernate name change). I also think
some of the classes it relies on have changed between the two versions,
looks like it might be quite a bit of work to get it going and would not
be that useful (not sure we'de want to use a hand rolled Frankenstein
hibernate2/hibernate3 jar)

Think we will just go for this option it's clean, easy to do and easy
to document for others to follow.

or b)

Funily enough I've just been looking at unrelated issues with php which
truncates varchars down to 255. So if we wanted to do anything with php
to directly access the grouper database we would need it to be 255
anyway. This is a possiblilty as we have a lot of php based web
infrastructure. So might use php for sign up scripts, access management
