-1 on moving roles. It is access control. I stick to my "users" =
"people" idea: the only role thing that I think should go in to "users"
is assigning users to rules. And that is already there due to editing
Setting up roles is not setting up users.

As per the discussion at:
(settings inconsistencies)
This patch implements the suggestions show in the screenshot (found in
the link above).

noticed (e.g. unnecissary passing of form [edit] data between
Though more code could be cleaned in user module this was just a start
to meet the primary goals of this patch.
Finally the help text found in hook_help are now linked properly with
their associated pages, and links within the text now take you to the

Almost forgot,
The creation of the user/users path was done to allow the creation of a

a user from the user listing page).

the format listed is required to create the menu parent-child
I also noticed that 'create' and 'add' are used in different modules
throughout Drupal (both meaning and doing the same sort of thing). 
What is the standard?  'create' or 'add'?  Since this is about
