We can force Propel to do it the way we ask. If it natively wants to do
2 calls we can use a named query and force a join instead. There may
even be a way to do the joins with the Propel models themselves but this
I haven't tried yet.

Right, the system privileges would go in Auth_Enterprise. The
item-level settings would go in the gl-database. Of course, we will
combine the data structures of the two so we are really talking about
the same database.

Didn't know that. I'll have to take a gander.
