Would the point in time audit give you what you need?

I know in the new UI, I can use the "View Audit Log" menu item to see the
membership changes of a particular group. However, it seems like this only
shows the direct membership changes. E.g. if I have a group "employees" and
it is a member of group "vpn_users" and subject "smithj" is added to
"employees", this fact doesn't seem to be aparent if I am viewing the audit
log for "vpn_users" (though I see it in the log for "employees").

I was wondering, is there a way to have this feature in the New UI drill down
to the subject changes?

More importantly, I was wondering if there is a way to run some kind of
reports (vs. the DB or with GSH?) that could provide this kind of information
for various groups. I think it would be useful for monitoring the health of
the system.

I think that it might have been mentioned somewhere that there are database
views I could use to get this kind of information, out of Grouper, but I
wasn't sure what they were or whether they are part of a stable API.
