There is also the issue of when you have more than 5 or so roles, and the
goes to the right beyond the screen.

Some alternatives were proposed some time back.

One of them (was it by Konstantin K?) was to use css to highlight the column
(role names) on the line that has the cursor on it.

Another was to have collapsible.

It is a tough usability one to tackle, specially scaling well for many roles
many modules and many permissions per module.
