Just as a heads-up I'm continuing to work on these patches.  The point
tests I added (rather than just waiting for the dbcheck) show the issue
isn't totally resolved, but is better.  (I somehow found a
member/memberOf link left over...).

Review of this much would be helpful, but expect additional changes as
we finally start to get this right.
