roles and categories

I have done some thinking (but no coding, gosh)

Would it make lussumo vanilla role management easier if roles were stacked rather than continuous.
Two or more roles for one person instead of just one role.
Role= grouping of rights
One user = many roles

It is easier to explain by an example.
So user has all the usual rights. Posting for certain category would be another role, right to add pictures and flash just another.

What do you think. Or would it make all more complicated (it could create possiblity that admin just creates too many roles and messes all up).

    Too complex i think.

    It would allow more granular permissions - which would really help! You wouldn't **believe** how many roles and categories I've had to create to create a similar effect in terms of permissions!

    It is theoretically feasible, but I think would be pretty hard in practice. You would essentially OR the permissions of all of the roles the user belongs to in order to generate "their" permission list, and test against that.
