Exactly. I am doing this without the module.

I needed to assign a new role, which I called 'User Admin' and set 
privileges to only allow adding and editing of users. Not only does 
this add a 'users' menu item but a 'access control' menu item. 
Fortunately the user I was assigning this role to is competent and 
trustworthy colleague, so a "Please don't mess with the access control" 
was enough. I thought it very strange that this wasn't part of core 
anyway. so...

- I support the "idea"
- Makes complete sense to me. (in the context of supporting the idea 
because the idea makes _complete sense_ to me)
