I touched on a solution to that in the part of my message that you
elided. I admit I was rather confused by what exactly was being
cited as the problem, but this is on I do know about. (I'd actually
love to see some kind of plugin setup so an AFS PAG shower could be
added, but at the same time that seems just a little bit silly/
overblown for simple stuff like id and groups.)
