I have just realized that storing the group detail is quite important
for us after all, even if we do use SQL_GROUP_LIST. The reason is that
for each folder in the hierarchy I would like to generate the following
groups:

blacklist
whitelist
manual (composite: whitelist - blacklist)
auto (via grouperloader)
all (composite: auto + manual)

For the two composite groups I would have to be able to set the group
detail, wouldn't I?

Until this feature is available, I suppose that I could use gsh,
although this would be a bit of a hack as I would have to generate a
gsh-script with all the full group names required to populate the whole
hierarchy with the composite groups.

Xmas isn't too far off, so along with grouperLoaderGroupListPattern
maybe I can add group details to my wishlist.

Thanks

Loris
