Hi everyone,

It has been suggested [1] to me that the RoleAssign module [2] of mine 
should be part of core.

RoleAssign introduce the |assign roles| permission. While editing a 
user's account information, a user with this permission will be able to 
select roles for the user from a set of available roles. Roles available 
are configured by users with the |administer access control| permission. 
Thus, RoleAssign lets site administrators delegate assignment of 
selected roles.

I see the point to incorporate this kind of functionality with the User 
module. So now I am wondering if there is any support for that idea.
