When calling the getGroups web service on a person, I can get an exhaustive list of all groups that the person is a member of, regardless of the depth of indirect membership.

If I attempt the same call with a group 'foo', I only get the immediate groups that have group 'foo' as a member. I do not get all groups that depend indirectly on 'foo'.  

Is there a way to accomplish this, short of writing a recursive method that calls getGroups?   During the recursion, I also need to check if the group is a factor in a composite.  What do I call for that?
