In 2.0 there is UI support for the attribute framework. Its not as easy to
use as the old one, but its possible... Is that an option? In 2.2 we will
make it as easy as the old attribute framework...

I'm trying to write code we won't be ashamed to share :-)

There's no support in the current Grouper UI for the attribute
framework, is there? We're considering whether we can defer supporting
alternate names for the Google groups.
