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?

Yep. We can work with that.

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)

I would definitely vote for eventually moving this to the API so STEM is like ADMIN of a group.

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 actAsSubjectId?

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.
