Here is where I bump into my Drupal ignorance. I thought (and please
excuse my misuse of terminology) node grants and node permissions were
different. By node grants I mean "grant_list", "grant_view",
"grant_update", "grant_delete". By node permissions, I mean
"create_node_content", "edit_node_content", "administer_module", etc...
Now, if it's possible to create a mechanism that adds the correct user
access roles within OG, then it sounds like that's the way I should go.

Yes, very interested.

For example, on OG, this is the user_access check to determine whether
to display a create content link:
node_access, as you know, calls user_access.
Theoretically, you are saying that it's possible to create a user
access function in OG that would override or append to the Drupal core
user access function?
