Which is why I'm asking if there is any way at all to do shared roster
groups with external authentication. In your previous email you said
that @all@ would in fact work, in contradiction of the above linked
page. I've followed those instructions and I'm not getting any kind of
shared roster on iChat or Adium. This is sort of why I'm asking what I
should expect to see on the client end if it was working: is there
anything special I need to do to see the shared contacts from the
server? I'm not seeing anyone show up in my buddy list.

Thanks again for your time, and please excuse my confusion - I think I
may be incorrectly conflating "group" and "group chat" which is why
I'm asking if I need to make my client join a "group chat" in order to
see the shared contacts.
