Yes, that is preferable, however in most places (ie. combo boxes) the
icons got lost when pgAdmin 2 was rewritten as pgAdmin 3.

I think a flat view, as it could get very messy with 1 role being a
member of more than one other.

No, I agree it's bad practice, but it might happen (I assume - haven't
tried it though) as far as I can see from the docs. In fact, they say:
"A role having LOGIN privilege can be thought of as a user", so I think
we should not count hild roles, and just rely on LOGIN.
Of course, this seems like a good candidate for a guru hint.
