1) 0352.2: I think that ipaPermTargetFilter and ipaPermTarget should be
SINGLE-VALUE'd as well

2) More about the schema, I think we should move the attributes that permission
plugin always depends on to MUST list, I think this should affect:
* ipapermright
* ipapermbindruletype

I was pondering about ipapermallowedattr, but ACI works without it well, it is
just NOOP. Other attributes are just different combinations of targetting the
entries to protect, so they may stay MAY.

3)326.2: shouldn't

+        StrEnum(
+            'ipapermright*',
+            cli_name='permissions',

rather read 'ipapermright+'? This is what I get if I omit the permissions:

# ipa permission-add foo --attrs=description --type group
ipa: ERROR: an internal error has occurred

Same with update and other attributes:
# ipa permission-mod foo3 --permissions ''
ipa: ERROR: an internal error has occurred

# ipa permission-mod foo3 --memberof=''
ipa: ERROR: an internal error has occurred

The later one is only reproducible if there is not memberof part set.

4) Internall error when entering blank subtree
# ipa permission-add foo3 --permissions write --subtree ''
ipa: ERROR: an internal error has occurred

5) Internal error when entering non-blank subtree and nothing else:

# ipa permission-add foo3 --permissions write --subtree 'cn=otp,dc=example,dc=com'
ipa: ERROR: an internal error has occurred

[Thu Dec 12 13:18:04.635874 2013] [:error] [pid 17259]     raise SyntaxError,
"target must be a non-empty dictionary"

It seems this case should translate into error "there should be at least one
target entry specifier".

6) permission-find gives 0 results when searching in the default DN and it was
not explicitly set:

# ipa permission-find  --subtree dc=example,dc=com
0 permissions matched
Number of entries returned 0

7) Web UI list of permissions returns weird results (just 2 of my new testing
permissions). This is what it calls:

[Thu Dec 12 13:41:01.473157 2013] [:error] [pid 17258] ipa: INFO:
[jsonserver_session] admin IDM LAB ENG BRQ REDHAT COM: permission_find(u'',
sizelimit=0, pkey_only=True): SUCCESS

But as I see, Web UI is broken in many other aspects, so it needs to be adapted
to the new output. As I do not want to stop development of the server framework
part (there is a lot to do) it can be done in other patches after yours are
merged, so that we have at least the server part in. We just need to fix it
before 3.4 release.

This is all I found in the second round of review, these are mostly corner
cases, the core of the patch set seems to be nice.
