Andreas is right.

Hooray for "roles" -- this is indeed the only way to preserve 
the DBA's sanity across personnel turnover in key entry and 
front desk, etc.  definitely a core item.

A place where Sybase falls on its heinie (yes, I can admit
that their engine is less than perfect :-)) is that users
can only belong to *one* "group".  This is frustrating,
and I'd love to see the ability to associate users with
multiple roles, rather than creating an elaborate system
of hierarchical role defs.

Gee, this PG discussion just gets more and more exciting as 
it goes on.
