I implemented the Grouper org hook at Penn. I have permission to share my
experience outside of Penn so I made a document here:

This is the size of our org implementation:

27,000 people in orgs at Penn
2,200 orgs
3,000 org groups (more due to include/exclude lists)
500,000 org memberships (there are a lot due to the rollups, and
include/exclude lists)

Note that the bulk of the work was in figuring out how our org data is
structured, and how I can expose it in views to something that the loader can
process. If you want to get this working at your institution this document
should be helpful.

Btw, Loris, does this help with your org issues?
