   Don't you see a trap here? :)

   See, your "lesser mnager" can add users. Well, she adds a user... with
mnagement rights! And immediatly login as this user!!!

   If a person can mange users, she can get manager rights. So why not give
them anyway, without forcing them to cheat? :)

   To developer: IWBN if the user who can add users would allowed to set
roles not higher than its own roles, wouldn't it?
