For some reason a simple git reset --hard to your last commit on 
upgradeprovision didn't do the trick I had to rebuild to see those 
change appearing !

Well I didn't like it like that ! I still find the idea of multiple 
commit not a good one !

Please have a look at the patchs attached to this email (especialy the 
last one which is implementing a, ihmo, cleaner way to reorder object 
depending on others).

For the grouptype "pb" it's fixed in 1st patch.

This patch set also add the proper upgrading of object wrongly put in 
CN=Users (this will be effective when you will rework your patchs).

Needless to say that with this set of patch upgradeprovision is able to 
upgrade properly an alpha10 provision with your patches (that were 
reverted then by tridge) and without.

This set of patch a built upon the fact that the changeset 
2cedefabc93c8a1fcb49d65a3f78a344e814f826 is reverted.

Andrew: can you give me your comments on those patches ?
