Re: 'Inheriting' an attribute from a group.

Is there a recommended, 'production' way to inherit certain attributes
from a group? Perhaps some kind of overlay?

For example, if a user is in the 'users' group and the users group has
the attribute userQuota=100 then the user will appear to have userQuota=100.

If, on the other hand, userQuota=200 is set on the user then that would
override the current value.

I don't think there's anything in the current code that does this, but you could modify the collect (collective attributes) overlay to do it.
