My feeling is that the API of grouper gives users "stem" on a folder they
create. However, the UI lets users with STEM create groups in that in that
folder in addition to folders. But the WS just uses the API (which doesn't
allow this). So if you are using the WS, for now you need to grant that priv
to that user after they create a folder (if the user has STEM they have
permission to grant it to themselves)... ok?

Maybe we can revisit this when developing the new UI (i.e. move this to the
API, so a STEM is like ADMIN of a group where you can do all privs on that)

Is there a way to configure Grouper such that subjects automatically get the
privilege to create groups under stems they've created using WS calls with

It's odd to me because with default settings they seem to get the privilege
to create additional stems under stems they create, but not groups within
those stems.
