How ugly! The icon can signal it.
Still questions open:
Hierarchical or flat view? Separate grouping for login/nologin roles,
roles with/without childs?
Actually, I don't find it good practice to use a role as group and login
at the same time. I'd be inclined to name all roles with login without
childs a user, the rest role/group, grouping them accordingly.
