If a person can have multiple account, subject ID should be per account.
Here, 1 person=1 account, so the unique identifier is also unique per person

Is that "university ID which never changes" specific per person or per
account/netid/userid? If we were to introduce such an identifier I guess we
would want it to be unique to a person, to tie together all her
accounts/netids, allowing for name changes common to all netids, etc.
But I suppose this is not what grouper would consider as a suitable subjectId
-- Grouper would want a unique id per netid/account/login name, right?
