Here is the GAL Segregation white paper for Exchange 2007 which you can follow to complete the job:

Issue - none that I am aware of.  If you get the settings right, then it will work happily.

It works for Exchange 2007 and I used it for Exchange 2010 SP1 (until they brought out SP2 and did it differently).

Client won't feel any glitches.

There are lots of steps to follow and you are editing the basic permissions, so you can mess up unless you read carefully and do exactly as written.

Not aware that Service Packs affect it in any way.

The guide is all you need.  Shouldn't need any troubleshooting to be done.  If you follow the guide, it should work happily.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

Exchange 2010 SP2 enabled a feature called Address Book Policies which does a similar job to GAL Segregation and you can read more about it here:

Also in Exchange 2010 SP1, there was a option to install in Hosted Mode and here is an article about the future of hosting mode:
