      Hi Chris,

      Thank you for the enhancement and for the documentation.

      Most of the Grouper deployments I work with use LDAP (ie.
      JNDI) as the subject source as opposed to JDBC.

      Would you consider adding more detail including a full example
      for a "typical" JNDI source? I can provide you some example
      sources.xml if you would like to see what I usually encounter
      in my deployments.

      I would also find it helpful to have every configuration
      option enumerated, with any applicable default, if possible.

      Lastly, a number of deployments that I work with use more than
      one LDAP/JNDI subject source simultaneously. Can you document
      how a deployer would configure N simultaneous LDAP/JNDI
      sources? (I suppose it would be good to also document N
      simultaneous JDBC sources too).

      Thank you for your consideration.
