[development] Assigning user to roles programatically

I'm looking for some way to assign a user to a role programatically.
You'd think this would be easy to do, but it isn't: I tried just about
every drupal hook you can think of to hook add this to the "user add"
and "user edit" screens, and nothing worked. The problem was that
node_save really really really wanted to get in there last, and I never
found a way to get around this. I even tried to stamp the fields into
the database. No use. node_save just went in at the end of the request
and changed it back for me :-(
Does anyone know how to coerce Drupal 4.6 into doing this? Or sweet
talk it into this? It would be nice if there was an API for this, but
AFAIK there isn't. What hook should I use, and which 2x4 do I need to
