Here's a solution. It is for Grouper 1.4, but should work with 1.5 too:

To use this class, create table, sequence, group type as stated in the
comments, then call public static void setUnixGroupId(Group group) from your
Hook in groupPostInsert and groupPostUpdate. Note, a certain Group name will
always get the same ID even if being deleted and re-created, this was an
import precondition here at Freie Universit├Ąt Berlin. Depending on your
requirements this may or may not be what you want.

For us, this works like a charm so far. We would love to see something like
this in standard grouper, but I guess it's a bit too specific.

Basically, this is what Loris suggested in
